Topeka Murder Suspect Arrested In New Orleans

The Kansas Apprehension Task Force, a multi-jurisdictional fugitive task force comprised of the United States Marshals Service, Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office, Topeka Police Department, and Kansas Department of Corrections investigators, developed information on the location of fugitive EDDIE ANTHONY GORDON, 21 years of age.

Information was sent to the U.S. Marshals Service Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force in New Orleans, LA. Acting on that information, GORDON was arrested by U.S. Marshals at an apartment in East New Orleans where GORDON had ties. He was arrested at approximately 4:30 PM on January 6th and later placed in the Orleans Parish Jail.
