Father and Son Fugitives from Oklahoma Arrested

May 22, 2015

Darrell Dee Faver (3-5-61) and his son John Murray Faver (7-1-83) were arrested by LCSO and members of the US Marshal’s Regional Domestic Fugitive Task Force (RDFTF) yesterday in Bronson at the Bronson Motel room 12A. Both father and son were wanted by authorities in Oklahoma for Rape in the 1st degree. Warrants had been issued by Oklahoma law enforcement, stemming from their investigation.

The younger Faver, a former correctional officer from Oklahoma, and the father known for his survival skills; fled Oklahoma shortly after the investigation began. They ultimately settled in Bronson. Investigators and members of the RDFTF began tracking the pair on Tuesday evening in Bronson after receiving information they could be in our area.

The Favers acquired a vehicle registered from Texas sometime after fleeing from Oklahoma. Oklahoma determined the Favers had been utilizing the vehicle and began to monitor law enforcement data bases. Oklahoma discovered LCSO ran the Texas tag late last month and, with a simple phone call LCSO and RDFTF began to scour the Bronson area for the vehicle. Shortly after lunch the vehicle was found parked at the Bronson Motel. Management confirmed the pair were occupying room 12A and were inside.  They surrendered when deputies confronted them and they were taken into custody.

Both are being held at the Levy County Detention Facility without bond and are awaiting extradition back to Oklahoma.
