The U.S. Marshals are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Cornies “Peanut” Hawthorne, a man they have deemed to be armed and dangerous, in connection with an attempted murder and robbery that took place May 4, 2016 in Fremont, Ohio.
Hawthorne was reportedly in the area because a woman with whom he shares a child lived in the same apartment complex. Witness statements identified Hawthorne as the perpetrator, who was indicted on May 20, 2016, in Fremont on charges of attempted murder and aggravated robbery. All attempts by the Fremont Police Department and the U.S. Marshals to find Hawthorne have turned up empty to this point.
Although this YouTube video indicates Hawthorne is wanted for murder, the charge is attempted murder. The video does provide several photos of the suspect to help in his identification:
Hawthorne, believed to have fled to Michigan after the robbery and shooting in May 2016 and may still be there or may be in or near Fremont, Ohio due to his ties to the area.
Anyone with information about Cornies “Peanut” Hawthorne’s whereabouts is cautioned not to approach him due to his “armed and dangerous” status, but to call the Fremont Police Department (419) 332-6464 or the U.S. Marshals (313) 234-5656. Callers may remain anonymous if they wish.
