Atlanta police on Tuesday arrested a man suspected in five slayings that had Baton Rouge on edge since nearly one year ago, when investigators first announced a serial killer was on the loose.
Derrick Todd Lee (search), 34, was taken into custody by three police officers Tuesday evening, Atlanta Police Chief Richard Pennington said. Authorities had just missed apprehending Lee at a homeless shelter and then at a motel.
"We have taken a very dangerous person that is a serial murder suspect off the streets," Pennington said.
We’ll break down the hunt for Lee that spanned two states with FNC correspondents Mike Tobin and Jonathan Serrie.
We’ll also examine the role that a DNA dragnet played in Lee’s apprehension and how DNA is changing law enforcement with attorneys Cynthia Alksne and Jonna Spilbor.
And, we’ll get very personal reaction to the arrest from Lynda and David Yoder, who lost their daughter Carrie, and Lynne Marino, the mother of one of the murder victims, Pam Kinamore.
Plus, a Modesto, Calif., judge ruled Tuesday that search warrants and other documents related to Scott Peterson's arrest on murder charges remain sealed for now and that tape recordings of 69 Peterson phone calls be turned over to defense attorney Mark Geragos.
How will this impact the case? Cynthia Alksne, former federal prosecutor, and Jonna Spilbor, criminal defense attorney and Reasonable Doubt syndicated columnist, join the debate.
And, we’ll hear from Gloria Allred, the attorney for Peterson’s girlfriend, Amber Frey.
