Appleton Arrest Records Online

Arrest records for Margaret Appleton are available on Lexington's "Division of Community Corrections" web site, as are those for other former Adair Countians. According to the listings, Appleton has been in custody more than once since early 2001, for charges ranging from failure to pay fines to possession to endangering the welfare of a minor. Appleton was recently charged in the triple murder of the Wellnitz family 10 years ago in Columbia.

In addition to the history of arrests, the site includes biographical information and photographs of offenders. Appleton's details are linked here.
