Investigators looking for estranged husband sought in 32-year-old Stark County woman's death

STARK COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - The Stark County Sheriff's Office continues to search for murder suspect 39-year-old Dustin Ray White. He's accused of killing his estranged wife 32-year-old Amber White inside the home they once shared in the 7400 block of Hill Church Avenue SE.

Dustin White is a white male, 6 feet 2 inches tall, roughly 190 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

He was last seen driving a red or burnt orange 2016 Ford Escape with license plate number GUY4698.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Stark Co. Sheriff's office at 330-430-3800.

Deputies were called to the 7400 block of Hill Church Avenue SE around noon on Friday.

White's sister called 911 concerned about his well-being.

"I think my brother's going to try and kill himself," she told the dispatch.

"Where's your brother at right now?" the dispatcher asked.

"I don't know where he is right now," she said.

Concerned turned to panic after White's sister noticed he wasn't at his house.

"Ma'am tell me what's going on here," the dispatcher said.

"He shot her," she responded.

The dispatcher asked if the victim was breathing, to which she said "no, I don't think she is."

Earlier in the 911 call, White's sister told the dispatcher that her brother and Amber were "going through a divorce".

Jason Neira lives next door to where Amber's body was found.

"No one deserves to go that young," Neira said. "It's bad. I guess it makes you appreciate life and how any day could be your last."

Neira didn't know the White's well. He would occasionally see them going down the road and wave. On Friday, Neira said something got his dog's attention. When he looked across the yard, he said he saw Dustin White.

"The dude running out of his house. He had both of his dogs on the leash- by the collar," Neira said. "He was kind of running. I kind of moved. He looked at me then went that way towards his car."

Neira said it didn't seem out of the ordinary until police arrived and later said they were investigating a homicide.

"We thought he (White) got busted like for drugs or something- definitely not expecting what actually happened," Neira said.
