BROWARD COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — There is now a suspect in the high-profile murder case of a man whose body was found on I-595 last month.
From the Broward Sheriff’s Office:
Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives have obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect they believe is responsible for the murder of a man on Interstate 595 last month, and detectives are asking the public to provide information that might lead to his capture.
Detectives say Marcus Ramone Cooper Jr. was riding in a car with Tyron Arthus on I-595 eastbound near Hiatus Road sometime before 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 8. For reasons that remain under investigation, Cooper ordered Arthus out of the vehicle and shot him multiple times, killing him.
Around 1:28 a.m., the Florida Highway Patrol responded to a report of a person lying on the shoulder of the eastbound lanes of I-595, and Davie Fire Rescue responded and pronounced Arthus deceased on scene. FHP requested assistance from BSO’s Homicide and Crime Scene units to investigate the case.
On November 1, a Broward County judge signed a pick up order for Cooper, 17, on a charge of first degree premeditated murder with a firearm. Anyone with information on Cooper’s whereabouts is asked to either call 911, contact BSO Homicide Detective Wilson De Jesus at 954-321-4289 or Broward County Crime Stoppers anonymously at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org.
Cooper should be considered armed and dangerous, and the investigation into the homicide is ongoing.
