Marrero, La. - The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office has arrested a Marrero man for the murder of three year-old Desmond Brown.
Col. John Fortunato with JPSO says officers arrested 34 year-old Timothy Reed and booked him with first degree murder, attempted first degree murder, and attempted aggravated arson.
Police say detectives focused their attention on Reed after interviewing the victim's mother, Lakeshia Brown.
Ms. Brown told detectives she last saw her son alive when Reed had taken him to the parades on Mardi Gras day.
Detectives then began a search for Reed for questioning.
On February 14th, Homicide Detectives, members of the CIC along with the assistance of the US Marshall's Gulf Coast Regional Task Force located Reed hiding in a bathroom in a motel room on I-10 Service Road in New Orleans East.
Reed was taken into custody, booked as a fugitive from Jefferson Parish on two attachments, and in turn transferred to Jefferson Parish.
Upon being questioned relative to the death of Desmond Brown, Reed admitted taking Desmond with him on Mardi-Gras day as well as being with him at the time of his death. Reed made inculpatory statements regarding Desmond Brown's death, however, investigators don't believe Reed's confessions were completely truthful.
Timothy Reed has a prior criminal history with arrests for: First Degree Murder, Aggravated Rape of two Juveniles, Domestic Violence and Child Abuse.
