Kasey R. Dischman

A nearly two-month manhunt for 32-year-old Kasey R. Dischman ended peacefully Sunday afternoon.

Butler police caught the Butler woman after they received an anonymous tip about 3:35 p.m.

The tipster reported seeing the defendant in the area of Pillow Street walking toward the Pullman Square shopping plaza, said police Lt. Brian Grooms.

Dischman did not resist and was taken into custody. She was placed in the Butler County Prison on a pair of bench warrants.

Authorities had been looking for Dischman since Jan. 28 when Butler County officials say she cut off her electronic monitoring device and fled from her city apartment.

Dischman captured statewide attention after prosecutors charged her with overdosing on heroin while pregnant June 22, 2017. The top count was later dismissed, leaving Dischman to face misdemeanor charges of child endangerment, corruption of minors and possession of drug paraphernalia.
