Memphis, TN – A mother who allegedly abused her medically troubled child to death is being brought back to Shelby County to face justice thanks to the U.S. Marshals Task Force.
Andrea Ruth, aged 12, was neglected by her parents, Errol Johnson and Raven Ruth, to the point she developed gangrene in her legs and passed away. On 2-14-14 warrants were issued for Johnson and Ruth for First Degree Murder and Aggravated Child Abuse. Errol Johnson was arrested on 2-18-14.
Investigators with the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force (GCRFTF) began researching the location of Ruth immediately. Raven Ruth was located in the 1700 block of Andrey Street in New Orleans, Louisiana on 2-19-14. She was taken into custody by agents with the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force without incident. At the time of this press release she remains in the Orleans Parish Jail awaiting extradition back to Shelby County.
