PITTSBURGH, PA - Allegheny County Sheriff William Mullen announces the apprehension of Asia Camp, 24, of Pittsburgh, PA.  Camp was the owner and passenger of the vehicle driven by Demetrius Coleman, who in an attempt to flee police following a traffic stop on Thanksgiving Day last year, killed a family of three in a fiery crash. 

The accident occurred slightly after 2:17 p.m., when East McKeesport police pulled Coleman over into the GetGo parking lot along Route 30, for making an illegal turn.  When authorities ran the actor’s name, they found Coleman was wanted for a probation violation for felony drug possession with the intent deliver.  As officers approached Coleman’s car, he sped-off down Route 30 eastbound.  During the pursuit, Coleman’s vehicle exceeded 100 mph before it struck a car, killing David Lee Bianco, his fiancée, Kaylie Meininger, and their 2-year-old daughter.

Following the accident, Coleman’s passenger, Asia Camp, was found with 42 individual dose bags of heroin.  She told investigators she and Coleman had been driving around selling the drugs before authorities pulled them over.  She was subsequently charged with possession with intent to deliver and possession.  A warrant was issued December 29, 2016 when Camp failed to appear at her preliminary hearing. 

Camp also failed to show at a meeting with counselors regarding her two minor children, which was scheduled to take place this morning.  She later appeared at the Office of Children, Youth and Families South Side location, but left before deputies assigned to the Sheriff’s Office’s AM Fugitive Squad arrived at the scene.  Deputies pursued the suspect to the intersection of East Carson Street and South 9th Street, where Camp was taken into custody by deputy sheriffs without incident.  She is currently lodged in the Allegheny County Jail, where she will be arraigned later today.
