Richmond police arrest suspect in 2020 murder
RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) - A suspect has been arrested in connection with a Richmond murder.
Police say 24-year-old Camron C. Thomas was arrested Monday. He is accused of killing 59-year-old Freddie Biggs back in October 2020.
Early in the morning on October 9, 2020, police responded to a reported burglary with shots fired at an apartment in the 300 block od East Main Street. Police say two people were inside the apartment when a man forced his way into the home and shots ended up being fired.
When officers got there, they found Biggs with a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police say, over the past year, the investigation identified Thomas as the suspect.
“Our investigators have done a great job on this,” said Richmond Police Chief Rodney Richarson. “I’m just glad that we can give the families a bit of closure and put the person responsible in jail.”
Thomas is facing charges of murder, burglary, robbery and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon. He is being held in the Madison County Detention Center. His bond has been set at $1 million.
Police say it’s possible more arrests could be made in the case.
