Texas OK'd Craigslist Suspect Release

Thursday, 01 Dec 2011 02:34 PM

AKRON, Ohio — Texas authorities allowed a man now linked to a deadly Craigslist robbery scheme to be released temporarily from an Ohio jail this year.

The Texas Parole Authority initially requested that Richard Beasley be held for violating his burglary conviction parole after he was arrested in Ohio on drug-dealing charges.

But records show Texas was only interested in bringing Beasley back if he were convicted in the drug case.

Bill Holland, a spokesman for the Summit County Sheriff's Office, told The Associated Press on Thursday that Texas agreed to lift its hold on Beasley until the drug case was resolved.

Beasley is now a suspect in the deaths of two men and the nonfatal shooting of a third man who answered a phony Craigslist ad for a cattle farm job.
