Investigation into Missing Cedar Hill Man Continues

(Jefferson County) The investigation into the body recovered in the Cedar Hill home of a man shot and killed by Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputies on Friday night continues.

The SWAT team responded to the residence of 36-year-old Anthony Legens in the 8500 block of Lake Drive in Cedar Hill to serve a search warrant related to a possible homicide.

Authorities say when they arrived on scene Legens opened fire, ensuing a two hour gun battle in which Legens was shot and killed but not before shooting and injuring a Jefferson County SWAT team member.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Grant Bissell says this incident stems from a weeks-long investigation into a missing person/suspected homicide case.

That’s when the gun battle between deputies and Legens began and ending with Legens being shot and killed.

After the shooting stopped that’s when investigators were able to search the residence.

In addition, investigators were able to recover numerous firearms and drugs within the residence.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Jerry Crew is encouraged to call the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau at 636-797-5515.
