American Scene: Police say teen arrested in girl’s killing
WESTMINSTER — A teenager who lived just a mile from a 10-year-old Colorado girl who was abducted and killed earlier this month has been arrested in her death, along with a May attack on a runner, authorities said Wednesday.
Police announced the arrest as agents searched Mr. Sigg’s home, but they have released few details about the investigation. Court documents have been sealed, but a police custody report said Mr. Sigg was cooperative when he was arrested and waived his rights.
Jessica Ridgeway disappeared Oct. 5 while walking to school. Her body was found five days later in a field at a park.
The break in the case came a day after police said Jessica’s abduction was linked to the May 28 attempted kidnapping of a 22-year-old runner at another park, the Ketner Lake Open Space.
Ex-megachurch worker sought in fatal shooting
COLLEGE PARK — A volunteer leading a prayer service at a Georgia megachurch was fatally shot Wednesday morning, and authorities were searching for a former church employee suspected in the shooting.
The shots were fired just before 10 a.m. inside a chapel on the campus of World Changers Church International, which says it has 30,000 followers and is located in College Park, a suburb south of Atlanta.
The church’s well-known founder and leader, the Rev. Creflo Dollar, was not at the church at the time of the shooting, Fulton County Police Cpl. Kay Lester said.
Authorities identified the suspect as Floyd Palmer, 52, a former facilities maintenance employee at the church. Cpl. Lester said Mr. Palmer, who should be considered armed and dangerous, had resigned from his job at the church in August for “personal reasons.”
The victim was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Cpl. Lester said. He was described only as a 39-year-old volunteer and member of the church.
