[ISP] Suspect Wanted for Murder Arrested in Jefferson County
Start Date: 4/18/2012
End Date: 4/18/2012
Entry Description

On April 17, 2012 at approximately 12:50 p.m., the Indiana State Police along with units assigned to the United States Marshal Service’s Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force, the Indiana State Police Emergency Response Team, the Indiana State Police Drug Enforcement Section, Evansville PD, the Vanderburgh Count Sheriff’s Department and the Madison Police Department arrested WILLIAM C. COSBY / DOB: 07-25-1984, who was wanted on a warrant for first degree murder. 

The warrant was issued out of Illinois after a death investigation was conducted by the Illinois State Police.  During the investigation, it was learned that the suspect, WILLIAM C. COSBY was possibly in the Madison, Indiana area.  The Illinois State Police contacted the US Marshal’s Service and requested assistance with locating and arresting COSBY.  After receiving the information officers conducted surveillance on an apartment complex in which COSBY was believed to be at in Madison, Indiana (Jefferson County).  After several hours, officers saw the suspect leaving the complex in a gray Chevy passenger car.  A subsequent traffic stop of the car was conducted on Michigan Road at Miles Ridge Road in Madison.  The suspect was placed under arrest without incident and transported to the Jefferson County Jail where he awaits extradition to Illinois.

This investigation is on-going and any questions should be directed to M/Tpr. Shaun Hannon (Sellersburg Post, (800)872-6743), who is currently assigned as a Task Force Officer (TFO) with the US Marshal Service, New Albany Office.  Questions regarding the circumstances surrounding the case in Illinois which resulted in the warrant being issued should be directed to the Illinois State Police.
