The family of 35-year-old Jesse Cole Shuping was notified after Shuping was identified Friday.

The Sheriff’s Office said Shuping was in the area for four-six weeks and spent time in a local shelter before meeting someone who allowed her to stay at her residence.

Shuping was a convicted felon from Virginia and North Carolina and officials said he was on parole and wanted for Grand Larceny in Virginia.

Officials said it appeared that Shuping was at a motel attempting to collect a debt he believed someone owed him prior to the incident.

The names of the officers involved have not been released.
