CAMDEN COUNTY, Mo.- Court records say 32-year-old Timothy Evans, a suspect allegedly involved in the death of 63-year-old Dennis Born, has been charged.
Evans is charged with second-degree murder, delivery of a controlled substance, and first-degree tampering.
According to a probable cause statement, Born was found dead in a detached garage near a home on Thousand Oaks Dr. in Camden County. Born lived on the property with his mother, who authorities say discovered the body.
Investigators say the door to the garage appeared to have been forced open, as the lock was damaged. Suspected narcotics were found as well.
Family members said Born would carry a lanyard around his neck containing a truck key and house key. Authorities could not locate the lanyard. Born’s truck was also missing but has since been located by authorities.
The investigation led authorities to the Walmart Supercenter in Camdenton, Missouri. Investigators reviewed surveillance video from Walmart, which allowed officers to find Evans.
Evans was arrested Thursday, March 4, 2021, inside the city limits of Camdenton, Missouri.
Authorities say Evans is a known drug dealer and user of both methamphetamine and fentanyl.
