KERRVILLE, Texas (KXAN) — The brother of manhunt suspect Edward Levi Adamson says he hopes his brother turns himself into police. He received a call Friday morning with news of what allegedly happened in Llano County involving his 47-year-old brother, and says no one has been able to get a hold of him throughout the day.
Adamson’s brother tells KXAN News he noticed a change in his brother’s behavior in the past few months, saying he’s gotten into meth. The brother says Adamson does not have a violent history and the alleged home invasion is out of character. According to court records, Adamson does have an extensive criminal record, mainly burglary charges.
Adamson’s brother says he feels sorry for the people who were hurt in the incident. He also hopes that police don’t pressure his brother too much because at this point, “he has nothing to lose.”
KXAN also spoke with a property owner in Kerrville. The property owner says Adamson was living in a house until they evicted him two weeks ago. He added the house was recently raided by law enforcement, who were looking for possible stolen goods.
