At that time, a Lewis County deputy approached Mr. Walker while he was parked in a motor vehicle at the Lewis County Courthouse. Before he could speak with Mr. Walker, he fled in the vehicle. A Missouri State Highway Patrol Sergeant located Mr. Walker a short time later, but Mr. Walker fled from the Sergeant and was not located again.
