MOUNT VERNON - The Knox County Sheriff's Office is looking for Travis Bonham in connection with the Coshocton Rd. double homicide case. He is described as a white male, heavily
tattooed, average build, medium height. It is believed that he is
driving a black 2011 Dodge Charger license plate STELK2. He is said to
have ties to the Utica area and may be heading for Licking County.
