Investigators have been developing the case since the homicide. At 5:00 a.m. today, Jackson Police Officers and Investigators, Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms served search warrants at single-family residences in the 1100 and 1200 block of Hollywood.
During the course of the searches, 12 firearms (4 handguns and 8 long guns) were taken for further investigation. A stolen flat screen TV and evidence potentially related to the murder was also recovered.
This has been a team effort from the beginning both inside and outside the Jackson Police Department. Numerous Investigators from Criminal Investigation Division, Special Operations Division and Officers of the Patrol Division within the Department participated in the investigation and operations geared toward
developing leads, information and ultimately arrests. We gratefully acknowledge the Federal Bureau of Investigation, US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, United States Marshal's Service, Madison County Community Corrections and Madison County Sheriff's Office for their assistance and
commitment of time resources and manpower.
Investigators have been working closely with the District Attorney’s Office on procedure and charges of the suspects in this case.
Hudson will be arraigned in Jackson City Court on Monday, November 9, 2009. The fifteen-year-old will be presented to Juvenile Court for Detention Hearing. We have discussed the case with the District Attorney’s office and anticipate seeking transfer to try him as an adult.
