In an unusual move, Boone Police yesterday answered calls for much of Watauga County—areas where the Sheriff’s Department normally would handle the calls—that so all available manpower of the sheriff’s department could help with the search for evidence in the case of Jeremy Daniel Russom. The 27-year old Vilas man is jailed under $10 million in bond, charged with two counts of first degree murder from Monday’s slaying of Heather Baumgardner and Barry Wayne Cook.  The two were shot to death inside a Mabel School Road home Monday afternoon.  With Russom not found after fleeing the scene, deputies worked to reconstruct his path from the house ultimately to the yard of a house in Foscoe where he was captured Monday evening just after 6.  Sheriff Len Hagaman said that their search was hampered a bit by the afternoon rain, but that they kept to the task for all the daylight hours.
