From homecoming king to homicide suspect


JOHNSTOWN — The man who just three years ago was voted homecoming king at Greater Johnstown High School is now wanted in the stabbing death of his live-in girlfriend.

Demetrius “Mete” Gibson, 21, is being sought by Johnstown police after they say he stabbed Liz Miller early Tuesday morning at a car wash in Moxham following a domestic dispute.

Gibson was a popular student at Greater Johnstown, where he was voted best personality during his senior year and was one of the lead actors in the school musical.

After high school he attended Howard University in Washington, D.C., although a source told The Tribune-Democrat that he dropped out and returned to Johnstown.

Police indicated that Gibson might be dealing drugs. A search warrant application filed Tuesday shows they received permission to search his Catherine Street apartment in Tire Hill early Tuesday for weapons, drugs and any paraphernalia.

As of this morning, Gibson remained at large.
