Memphis, TN – U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller announces the capture
of Cornell Brown on charges of Capital Murder that occurred out of the
Western District of Arkansas.
On October 8, 2021, an arrest warrant for one
count of Capital Murder was issued for Brown. The West Arkansas Task
Force (WATF) received information that Brown was in the Memphis area.
On October 20, 2021, the West Arkansas Task Force
requested the assistance of the Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force
(TRVFTF) out of Memphis in locating and apprehending Brown.
Tuesday morning, the TRVFTF went to an address on
Double Tree Street in Memphis. As deputies approached the residence, the
front door was abruptly shut. The front door then opened again, and
Brown surrendered to deputies without incident.
U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller stated, “The
successful capture of fugitives on the run requires effective
coordination and teamwork between multiple agencies working together
across the country.”
