The suspect in fatal hit and run accident that left two women and an unborn baby dead, has been captured.
Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers arrested Paul Riggs Jr., 30, of Waverly, Ohio about 11 a.m. Wednesday. Troopers found Riggs along Germany Road about one mile south of State Route 32 in Pike County. Riggs was taken into custody without incident.
Troopers had been looking for Riggs since June 24 when they said the vehicle he was driving went left of center, killing Tina L. Ogier, 35, her unborn child and her passenger, Mary Jane E. Cooper, 19, all of Beaver, Ohio. A 14-year-old passenger in their vehicle was also injured.
Riggs was taken to the Pike County Sheriff's Office and was scheduled to be incarcerated at the Scioto County Jail. Riggs is facing three counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and one-count of aggravated vehicular assault.
