Police seek murder victim’s body
Police have arrested a 24-year-old Texas man and continue to search for the body of Robert E. Pogue, 28, who they believe was murdered and dismembered by the Texan in a city of Colby apartment May 30.
Dean Allen, 24, has been charged with first degree murder following the collection of evidence, including statements made by his estranged wife, Janice Allen, to another person who was interviewed by Marathon County detectives in Texas on June 3. Janice Allen and her three young children, ages 3, 5 and 9, had been living with Pogue in an upstairs apartment at 304-1/2 S. Division St. in Colby for several months. They had met in Texas when Pogue was living there with his wife Ann, and Janice was living with her husband, Dean Allen.
Allen, who was arrested the afternoon of June 9 in Nacogdoches, Texas, is accused of killing Pogue with a machete during an argument in the Colby apartment in the early morning hours of May 30. Janice Allen told the story to another person in Texas, who related the story to Marathon County Detective Wendell Roddy. Information has also been supplied by Colby-Abbotsford Police Chief Ron Gosse and other police reports.
Pogue had been reported missing June 4 by his mother, Shirley Manier of Abbotsford. A meat cutter at Sentry Foods in Abbotsford, he was last seen by his co-workers on May 29, according to police reports.
