Cleveland fugitive who left double amputee on train tracks surrenders
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - U.S. Marshals said Thursday that a previous fugitive of the week who was wanted for leaving a double amputee to die on train tracks surrendered Wednesday.
Aaron Parsons was wanted for aggravated robbery with a gun after he carjacked a man and left him on train tracks to die, officials say.
The victim told police that Parsons said, “if the cold doesn’t kill you, a train will,”.
Police say the victim was able to crawl to safety.
Parsons removed the victim’s wheelchair from the stolen car and threw it down a ravine, officials say.
The victim’s prosthetic legs were in the car.
Police say they found the car at around 3 a.m. on Feb. 23 after it was burned down.
