There is a nationwide manhunt for John Williams after he allegedly murdered Somerset County Corporal Eugene Cole.

Norridgewock, Maine - A nationwide manhunt is underway for a killer who murdered a Somerset County deputy overnight and stole his patrol car.

Early Wednesday morning, a suspect fatally shot Somerset County Corporal Eugene Cole and stole his patrol car, according to WCSH.

The suspect was identified as 29-year-old John Williams of Madison.

After stealing the police car, the suspect drove to Cumberland Farms on Waterville Road in Norridgewock at around 1:45 a.m., according to WCSH.

He then robbed the Cumberland Farms and fled the area on foot.

Williams has not been seen from since. He should be considered heavily armed.

He is described as 5' 6", 120 lbs, brown hair in ponytail, and blue eyes. UPDATE: Footage from the scene shows no sign of a ponytail.

The MSM will spend days talking about some criminal being shot by a police officer or a Starbucks customer being arrested for trespassing but this type of story NEVER seems to get the attention it deserves. I HATE the fucking media and everything they stand for. There is no truth in journalism, just an agenda they want to push for those incapable of thinking for themselves.

I am so sharing this so this POS can be caught. Do not kill him make him suffer the worst case scenario while in the chamber for his death sentence. If lethal injection is used then make it a bad batch. If electric chair used make it go on and off, another words make him suffer a hell on earth before he meets his maker Satan!

This is all I have for now, this is an active and fluid investigation.

No bullshit, i couldn't blame Canada one bit for wanting to keep Americans out.

That's some mean meth-face. If his community cared about him, maybe he could have been on something other than hard drugs, picked himself up by his bootstraps, and contributed to society.

Dah well. Thugs will be thugs.

It's in that weird gray area of, it is totally unbelievable, yet absolutely believable.

The cop murderer will be perp-walked in without a scratch on him, and he will feel as safe and secure as a white man can feel when they're in police custody for murdering an officer. He will stand trial, and most likely be sentenced.

And that's how it should go for everyone, not just "troubled people with a drug habit thrust upon them and forced to do evil things" like the media makes him out to be.
