Former 'Kirksville Fugitive of the Week' captured

Kirksville Police announce the capture of Terry Eiler

A longtime Kirksville Police Department "Fugitive of the Week" is no longer a fugitive.

Investigators say Terry Eiler, 54, of Kirksville, was captured Wednesday without incident.

Detective Justin Jones is the one who spotted Eiler.

Jones told KTVO that Eiler was sitting in a lawn chair in front of a relative's house in the 700 block of West Martha Street in Kirksville.

Jones was driving by when he recognized Eiler.

He says the fugitive went into the house, but he then gave himself up a short time later when Jones went to the door.

Eiler had been a fugitive for more than two years.

He was wanted on an arrest warrant from Missouri Probation and Parole for avoiding supervision by hiding out all this time.
