The 29-year-old man accused of gunning down a sheriff’s office corporal in Maine and who evaded authorities for four days has been captured, authorities said today.
John Daniel Williams had been on the run since Wednesday morning when he allegedly shot and killed Cpl. Eugene Cole of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office in Norridgewock.
Williams was apprehended at 12:43 p.m. today outside a small, remote camp in Norridgewock, officials said. Authorities had found tracks this week that confirmed the area he was in, officials said.
