Man Raped And Killed Ex-Girlfriend, Then Raped Another Woman And Made Her 8-Year-Old Daughter Watch
CLEVELAND, Ohio — Police in Ohio have made an arrest in an Alabama murder investigation that stretched all the way to Jacksonville Beach at one point.
The Jacksonville Beach Police Department released a statement Saturday night that said Ellis Patton, 30, had been arrested in Cleveland after being involved in a car crash.
Patton was wanted in connection with two rapes and a murder that happened last month. Police in Tuscaloosa, Ala., have been looking for Patton since Oct. 26.
Police said Patton raped and killed his ex-girlfriend, then raped another woman while he made her 8-year-old daughter watch.
On Monday, Jacksonville Beach police found Patton’s car near 16th Avenue South. Those who live in apartments around where the car was found were asked by police if they knew who owned the car, but were not told the car belonged to a violent fugitive.
According to the Jacksonville Beach Police Department, after Patton dropped of his car, he got a ride to Daytona Beach. Police said Patton then hitchhiked with someone to Ohio.
