Fugitive Linked to 2020 Washington Parish Murder Apprehended in Kentucky

The Washington Parish Sheriff's Office (WPSO) has announced the successful capture of 27 year-
old Trevion Mark, a fugitive connected to a homicide investigation dating back to 2020. Mark, apprehended in Kentucky, has been swiftly extradited and booked into the Washington Parish Jail, facing a multitude of charges including racketeering, obstruction of justice (counterfeit/forgery), second-degree murder, second-degree kidnapping, and possession of cocaine.

The arrest follows an incident on April 12, 2020, when a WPSO deputy responded to reports of gunfire at 58141 Hwy 1074. Upon arrival, the deputy discovered a white male victim with fatal gunshot wounds. Despite valiant attempts to revive him, the victim succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

An investigation led WPSO deputies to a silver Ford Mustang abandoned in the Enon area, later identified as Mark's vehicle. Eyewitness accounts placed Mark at a nearby Dollar General store, where he was promptly apprehended by WPSO deputies after illegal narcotics were discovered in his possession during a routine pat-down. Subsequent inquiries solidified his connection to the homicide case. Mark had bonded out of jail on November 16, 2023 while waiting a trial scheduled for February 6, 2024.

Sheriff Randy “Country” Seal emphasized the significance of Mark's apprehension, praising the relentless dedication of law enforcement personnel and investigative teams. "Trevion Mark's capture signifies a crucial breakthrough in our pursuit of justice for the tragic events of April 12, 2020," Sheriff Seal remarked. "We are immensely grateful for the support and collaboration of our law enforcement partners throughout this process."

Currently held at the Washington Parish Jail with bond set at $250,000.00, Mark awaits legal proceedings following his extradition. His recent apprehension in Kentucky came about on March 27, 2024 through the vigilant efforts of a deputy from the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office in Warsaw, Kentucky. During routine patrol near a Love's Travel Stop, the deputy observed suspicious activity, leading to Mark's arrest. Two female companions traveling with Mark were also detained for outstanding warrants in Texas. Despite providing false information initially, Mark was correctly identified and transported to the Carroll County Detention Center before being extradited to Washington Parish Jail.

The Washington Parish Sheriff's Office extends heartfelt gratitude to the community for their invaluable cooperation and assistance in bringing closure to this case.
