Lexington man wanted in Cincinnati double murder

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A Lexington man is wanted by police after a Cincinnati double murder.

It happened on Thursday around 1:30 a.m. Police responded to the 3400 block of Knott Street for a reported shooting. When they arrived, officers found two people dead at a home. They've been identified as Adam Bostic, 31, and Betty Thomas, 28.

Cincinnati Police have issued aggravated murder warrants on Brandon Thomas, 29. Thomas last lived in Lexington. They say he may be driving a green/gray 1995 Ford Explorer with Ohio registration GBG 9532. They say Brandon Thomas should be considered armed and dangerous.

Brandon Thomas and Betty Thomas are not related, according to police.

U.S. Marshals have been looking for Brandon Thomas since November. They say he was allegedly connected to a shooting at Diva's Gentleman's Club in Lexington on November 13 in which Curtis Simmons, 33, was killed. He died of multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and upper torso. We're told Thomas was released from the Fayette County Jail the day before the shooting. Lexington Police say Thomas was not wanted in the shooting, and they are not saying if he's connected to the crime, which is what we're hearing from U.S. Marshals.

On Thursday, WKYT looked into Thomas's criminal past in Lexington, which is extensive and dates back to 2000. He's been in and out of jail about every year since then. Some of his past charges include assault, terroristic threatening, several drug charges, and being a persistent felony offender.
