Person of Interest Identified in Case of Lockland Businessman's Death

LOCKLAND -- A day after 72-year-old James Rolman was abducted, he was found shot to death inside his own car.

Hours later, police arrested a person of interest. Christopher McFerron was arrested after a bizarre series of events on the interstate.

He's facing several charges related to a low-speed pursuit that he led officers on, and while police say he's a person of interest, he's not facing any charges related to the murder and abduction of James Rolman.

According to court documents, McFerron kicked his wife out of the car, put a gun to his head and led police on a chase on I-275 for about an hour.

McFerron faces charges of resisting arrest, induing panic and using weapons while intoxicated.

On the sidewalk, Annette Overstreet wrote a message to James Rolman. "I wrote 'Rest in peace. Thanks for everything'," she said.

Overstreet says Rolman helped her an her husband find a home. Overstreet's husband even worked for Rolman at the steel and recycle center on Longworth Street.

According to the Hamilton County Sheriff's office, McFerron lives less than a mile from Rolman's business with his wife and son.

Bennie Bowman also lives close. he says he's sold scrap metal to Rolman's company in the past.

"It's a sad situation; he didn't deserve that," said Bowman.

Some neighbors said they believe more people are involved and will be arrested.

McFerron is scheduled to go before a Hamilton County judge Monday morning.
