Arrest Made in 2004 Cold Case
Metro Police have made an arrest in a cold case from 2004.
IMPD Sgt. Linda Jackson says 54-year-old Tyreese Taylor was arrested March 14 for the murder of Jesus Echavarria in December of 2004. A third party contacted homicide detectives earlier this month and came forward to assist police. Sgt. Jackson says detectives were able to develop information that produced a Taylor's name and a motive.
The murder was originally declared cold five months after the investigation began because of inconclusive evidence.
Taylor is being held without bond in the Marion County Jail. He previously spent 22 years behind bars for a 1980 murder conviction.
