The Rest of The Story To Yesterday’s Knoxville Amber Alert

Knoxville (WDEF) – The suspect is now in custody for a kidnapping of a 16 year old girl Thursday that spawned an Amber Alert.

Police say the suspect broke into an apartment in downtown Knoxville around 1 AM and demanded money.

The resident apparently owed him money.

The resident payed him, but then the gunman ordered the 16 year old girl to leave with him.

She was recovered safely later in the day.

On Thursday night, police arrested William Henry Leonard for kidnapping, just hours after he went on the TBI’s Ten Most Wanted List.
