KENOSHA, Wis. — The Kenosha County sheriff says a fugitive is finally caught after a lengthy manhunt.
Sheriff David Beth said homicide suspect Andrew Obregon was in custody Tuesday after a foot chase near the Wisconsin-Illinois state line. No other details were immediately released.
Earlier, Beth said authorities believe Obregon carjacked a Chevrolet Spark near his parents' house in the Town of Brighton.
Investigators suspect Obregon killed Tywon Anderson believing he was a drug dealer who had robbed his nephew. Search warrant documents say Obregon admitted to at least two people that he killed Anderson, whose body was found in a cornfield last month. The Kenosha News says he was killed with a gunshot to the back of his head.
Authorities suspect Obregon robbed a gas station, broke into another convenience store and stole several vehicles.
