On October 3, 2013 a warrant was issued in Kanawha County Magistrate Court charging Kelsey Marie Legg with felony murder. Ms. Legg is a 19 year old female from Marmet, WV.
She is accused of luring Kareem Hunter to her apartment on 83rd Street in Marmet on September 23, 2013, for the purpose of having him kidnapped. Investigators believe Mr. Hunter was killed in Ms. Legg’s apartment.
Mr. Hunter was reported missing to Charleston Police Department detectives last week. He was last seen September 23, 2013. Charleston’s detectives investigated the disappearance, and were eventually directed to Ms. Legg’s apartment in Marmet. Evidence there led them to contact the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office. Detectives with the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office obtained a search warrant. Detectives from both agencies have continued investigating, and are still following leads and seeking information.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Ms. Legg is asked to immediately call 304-357-0169 or submit a tip on our website at www.kanawhasheriff.us.
Attached are two photos of Kelsey Marie Legg. As is always the case in criminal matters, the charge against Ms. Legg is merely an accusation. She is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
