Murder suspect sought after deceased man found along Slaughter Road

MADISON – Madison Police Chief David Jernigan said Tuesday morning his department is currently searching for a suspect after a deceased male was found along Slaughter Road during the night.

The suspect, Jonathan Taylor Stephens, 39, is being sought at this time. He is 6’2” in height, 205 pounds in weight, brown hair and brown eyes.

“Madison Police identified a residence of interest within the city and this location is under further investigation,” Chief Jernigan said. “An arrest warrant for Stephens charging him with murder, along with a search warrant for a separate residence in Madison was also obtained.”

Chief Jernigan said Stephens’ whereabouts are unknown at this time. He is a fugitive and should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.

Stephens has access to a 2016 Black Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck bearing Alabama license tag 9514AT5.

Madison Police were notified just after 1 a.m. Tuesday morning of a deceased male victim located on the roadside in the 200 block of Slaughter Road near the railroad crossing by the Huntsville Police Department. The deceased victim has been identified as Michael Anthony Baker of Huntsville.

Jernigan added that if the public is aware of Stephens’ whereabouts, the Madison Police Department is requesting you take no action yourself but to contact local law enforcement to report this information.
