Brother hopes manhunt suspect turns himself in to police

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.
