GILMER — A third suspect has been taken into custody in connection with the death of a Longview man. Andrew Conrad Norwine, 21, was extradited from the Vernon Parish Jail in Louisiana and brought back to Upshur County this morning. According to KETK, Norwine was arrested Christmas Day by Vernon Parish sheriff’s deputies on an outstanding capital murder warrant out of Upshur County with a bond of $1 million. Two other suspects, Sarah Haslam, 20, and Daniel Jones, 19, were arrested Dec. 19 and charged with aggravated kidnapping and capital murder in the slaying of Ronnie Gammage, 27. They remain in the Upshur County Jail.
Investigators believe the suspects slashed a tire on Gammage’s truck, then tricked him into taking a ride in Haslam’s car. The suspects beat and killed Gammage before burning and attempting to hide his body in a desolate area in Upshur County. Gammage was reported missing Dec. 8 by his mother. After a two-week search, his body was found after authorities released a bank security video that led to the identification of the suspects.
