The following criminal complaint has been filed in the Tucker County Magistrate office:
Keith Gene Dishler, Aliquippa Pa. has been charged with one felony count Malicious wounding, one felony count Kidnapping and one felony count Attempted Murder. According to the complaint on Tuesday, Dec.12, 2021 at approximately 9:30 a.m. TFC J.J. Schmidle reviewed an investigation received from the Tucker County Prosecuting Attorney S. Hull-Wilkins. Prosecutor Hull-Wilkins advised this investigation was received from Mt. Pleasant Township Police Department in Pennsylvania. This investigation is regarding a domestic battery/malicious wounding that occurred in Tucker County on Aug. 8, 2021.
Schmidle reviewed a police report from Mt. Pleasant Township Officer Marie Cuccaro. Her report advised that on Aug. 9, 2021 at approximately 1:11 a.m. she conducted a traffic stop on a Nissan Sentra and states that the female driver appeared to have several injuries to her face and head. Cuccaro identified the driver as Tiffany M. Dehaven. She also identified the male passenger as Keith G. Dishler. The officer called for EMS to access Dehaven. While speaking with EMS she admitted that while visiting Blackwater Falls and Douglas Falls, Dishler had allegedly physically her and beat her. Cuccaro’s report advised he then got in the vehicle with Dehaven and made her drive them home. Dehaven states that when she saw the patrol car, she purposely did something to get pulled over to get help. She was taken to the hospital due to her extensive injuries and Dishler was taken into custody.
On Jan. 8, 2022 at approximately 7:50 p.m. Schmidle spoke with Ms. Dehaven via telephone and obtained an audio recorded statement from her detailing the events that occurred on Aug. 8, 2021 at Douglas Falls in Thomas. She stated that on Friday, Aug. 6, 2021 she and her boyfriend Keith Dishler arrived at an Airbnb in the Davis area. She said they spent the weekend seeing sights around the area and wanted to see the falls in Thomas before they traveled back home. She said they stopped at the Mountaintop gas station in Thomas before they went to the falls. She said they bought liquor and Dishler bought a folding knife with a purple handle. She stated they arrived at approximately 5:15 p.m., they parked and walked down a trail near the falls and sat down on some large rocks. She said he played his guitar and lite some sage.
She advised he allegedly began talking about how he was beat and abused while he was in jail. She said he moved to a different rock and pulled out the knife and started to threat to kill himself. She moved closer to him to try and talk to him. She said when she got closer he turned on her and told her he was going to kill her and that he had planned to kill her the whole time. She said he allegedly told her she had 20 seconds to run, when she didn’t he told her time was up and began to beat her with his fist in the face. She said she didn’t know how long he beat her and pleaded with him not to kill her. She said he allegedly told her he was going to kill her and then have sex with her dead body.
She said at some point he couldn’t find his glassed and told her she had 20 minutes to find them. He allegedly got her in the water and made her go under water to look for his glasses. She advised he bragged about how beating her had excited him and he urinated on her while she was in the water. He had found his glasses and said he was going to take her to a hotel to torture and kill her. She said she begged him to let her go but he wouldn’t. She said he then noticed how bad she had been beaten and said he would have to kill her now because she couldn’t hide the injuries and people would see. She started he talked about how he could kill her with a rock and dig a grave in the woods.
She advised that after a few hours he decided to take her to a hotel and kill her and they began walking back to the car. She said that at some point near a bridge he hit her so hard in the face she went unconscious and blacked out for a minute. She advised he still had the knife at the bridge but must have either thrown it in the water or near the car because he didn’t have it in the car. She said that when they got in the car he forced her to drive and would punch her in the chest and arms so she could still drive. She said he commanded her to drive to Morgantown so he could allegedly torture and kill her. She stated when they finally got to a hotel in Morgantown she was able to convince him to let them drive home. She said she was having a hard time driving because of her injuries and could barely stay conscious.
She said when she got near Washington, Pa. she found a police officer alongside the road while Dishler was sleeping. She advised she stopped in the middle of the road so the officer would pull her over. She stated the officer pulled her over discovered her injuries and called EMS immediately. She advised Dehaven was taken into custody and she was transported to the hospital. She stated she had severe injuries which included seven stitches over her eye, a concussion, facial fractures and a broken jaw which required surgery. She stated she believed he was going to kill her. This incident occurred in Tucker County. All individuals are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
