Cherokee County Alabama Sheriff's Office

According to Sheriff Jeff Shaver, a juvenile was taken into custody by Cherokee County deputies on Friday afternoon for murder. Deputies responded to a residence on County Road 19 just after 11 A.M. on Friday after a 911 call was received about the shooting. Deputies discovered a female who was deceased from an apparent gun shot wound. The victim's son, who is the suspect, was transported to juvenile detention.

Sheriff’s Office personnel, members of the Major Crimes Unit, Centre Police, and the JSU Center for Applied Forensics all responded to the scene. The identity of the suspect is confidential and cannot be released because of the suspect’s age.

HIV, HBV, bloodborne pathogens, transdermal drugs, chemical nerve agents, and yes, even global viral pandemics are real and present risks to modern investigators, and proper PPE use deserves our full consideration.

Effective Thursday, March 19, 2020 the Center for Applied Forensics office will be closed tentatively until March 30, 2020. The administration is scheduled to make a decision on March 27, 2020 as to whether the closure for JSU should be extended. The office is officially closed during this time.
