Suspected deputy killer accused of raping teen
BATON ROUGE – The man accused of killing an East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s deputy Saturday night has been remotely booked into jail on charges related to what brought Sgt. Shawn Anderson to the hair salon where he was killed.
Brandon Wiley, 30, has not been charged in Anderson's death and is not physically in Parish Prison, according to Louisiana State Police. He remains hospitalized from injuries he received at the time of the shooting.
He was booked remotely by the Sheriff's Office, police said.
Wiley was booked with first-degree rape, resisting an officer and with tattooing and body piercing of minors
Although he has not been formally identified by authorities, multiple sources with knowledge of the investigation have identified Wiley as the man who killed Anderson.
The shooting happened around 11 p.m. at a hair salon in a strip mall near the movie theater on O’Neal Lane at I-12. Anderson, 43, went to the salon because he was investigating a rape report. He struggled with the shooter and was shot.
Anderson was taken to a hospital across the street but died from his injuries.
Deputies were looking for Wiley after a 15-year-old girl reported that he tied her hands with a belt and raped her.
The girl said that she had met Wiley a month before the rape and that he had given her tattoos without parental permission, according to arrest documents.
She said that on March 12, she asked him to pick her up at a business near the Mall of Louisiana. She said he took her to another unnamed business and did more tattooing on her. She removed her belt and went to the bathroom. When she emerged, he grabbed her, tied her hands behind her back, removed her clothes and raped her. She pleaded with him to stop because he was hurting her. He did eventually stopped and drove her home, arrest document show.
The girl’s mother took her to a hospital on March 13, and she was initially unwilling to talk to investigators. On Friday, she did discuss the events in detail, which lead investigators to search on Saturday for Wiley.
Court documents indicate that Wiley has an extensive criminal history.
Wiley was arrested in Dec. 2004 for attempted first-degree murder. He pleaded guilty to aggravated battery charges in Oct. 2005 and was sentenced to 13 months in jail.
On Dec. 9, 2009, he was picked up on a traffic stop with a stolen gun in his car. He was booked into jail as a felon with a firearm and with possession of a stolen firearm. It appears he was not prosecuted in that case.
In January 2010 he was arrested for misdemeanor unlawful tattooing of a minor. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four months in parish prison.
Two months later, he was accused of kissing and licking the breast of a 10-year-old child when he took her to the store for snacks. Her mother had known him for several years and allowed him to take the girl to the store. In that case, he was arrested for indecent behavior with a juvenile charges. He pleaded guilty to inciting a felony and was sentenced to two years in jail.
