Feds find suspected murderer aboard tugboat in Gulf of Mexico after break in La. missing person case
HUSSER - Federal agents went into the Gulf of Mexico to make a murder arrest after a missing man's body was found buried in a shallow grave in rural Louisiana.
Three suspects were booked for first-degree murder, armed robbery and obstruction of justice on Aug. 3, a day after a tip led deputies to the body of 22-year-old Tywonne "DayDay" Neal, who was buried near Singing Waterfall Road in Husser.
Neal had first been reported missing on July 17.
The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office said, 20-year-old Zoei Casnave of Folsom and 24-year-old Dominick Brumfield of Hammond were arrested first. The third suspect, 22-year-old Milton Clark III of Covington, was taken into custody by federal agents while working on a tugboat in the Gulf.
Casnave and Brumfield have since been booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail. Milton was jailed in Texas and is awaiting extradition to Louisiana.
