On the evening of April 3, 2014 Deputy Sheriffs assigned to the Warrants Division of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office received word that a fugitive was willing to turn in himself to authorities. The Deputy Sheriffs and Deputy U.S. Marshals had been searching for Eden Holt Wolfe of Kanawha County. Mr. Wolfe was wanted on a circuit court capias related to a transferring and receiving charge, as well as an outstanding warrant for brandishing.
Law enforcement officers devoted many combined work hours to locating Mr. Wolfe. When he called to arrange to turn in himself he said he was tired of running. Mr. Wolfe had been featured on WCHS Television’s Fugitive Files segment.
The Deputies met him at Standard Baptist Church. Mr. Wolfe was wearing a camouflage top. He was not wearing any other clothing. He had scratches on his face, legs, and arms, and said he had been bitten by a snake after falling into a snake pit.
Mr. Wolfe was examined by the medical staff at Charleston Area Medical Center’s General Division prior to being arraigned on the charges. He was then taken to South Central Regional Jail. Mr. Wolfe was unable to make bond on the brandishing charge, and will have to be seen by a Circuit Court Judge before a bond is set on the other offense.
As is always the case in criminal matters, the charges against Mr. Wolfe are merely accusations. He is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
