Police still searching for slaying susect

September 19, 1999

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The search continues for a Franklin County, Pa., woman charged with criminal homicide despite her case being profiled Saturday on "America's Most Wanted."

"We did get some calls on her, but she hasn't been captured as far as we know," a staffer for the Fox Network show said Sunday night about Tonya Nicole Dice. She has been charged by Pennsylvania State Police with criminal homicide and hindering prosecution in the Jan. 13, 1995, murder of Freddie Wate Brumfield.

Brumfield, 18, of Chambersburg, was found shot dead along a road outside Chambersburg. Police said he had been shot in a mobile home near Chambersburg before his body was dumped in Letterkenny Township.

In July police charged Dice, whose last known address was Fort Loudon, Pa., based on a statement she made in June 1995 that she was involved in the shooting. A few days later she failed to show for a court appearance and has been a fugitive ever since.

Dice named the shooter in her statement, but his name has not been released because he was never charged, according to police.

Last Thursday Trooper Eugene Covington said there was evidence that Dice was in the Atlanta, Ga., or Tampa Bay, Fla., areas.

The hotline number for "America's Most Wanted" is 1-800-274-6388.
