Dwayne Stone - Deputy
Lewis said Lewis County Deputy Dwayne Stone had been in Portsmouth all day Friday working with local authorities.
Lewis County Chief Deputy Dwayne Stone says it took Deputy Matt Ross a quarter to half mile with lights and sirens going down the AA Highway, just west of Garrison, to pull over the silver Jeep Cherokee -- now wrapped in plastic as evidence.
Stone says when the deputy cautiously walked up to the SUV with dark-tinted windows, the engine was still running. "As he approached the driver's side door, he could see a gun barrel," Stone said. "He pulled out his service weapon and retreated to the rear of his cruiser." Stone says when backup arrived, they smashed in the rear widow of the locked Jeep and found Riggleman dead from a single rifle shot to the head. Stone says West Virginia State Troopers were quickly on the scene and took the guns, bloody clothes, and will soon get the Jeep.
Stone is continuing the investigation into the accident.
