Arrest made in church slaying

Posted By on Thu, Jun 10, 2010 at 5:16 PM

The State Police have announced an arrest in the fatal beating death of an elderly woman found Sunday in a rural Cross County church. Said Bill Sadler:

At approximately 4 PM (central) a Seattle, Washington homicide task force squad took Rene’ Patrick Bourassa, Jr, 34, unknown city of residence, into custody. Bourassa was driving the Mercury Marquis belonging to Lillian Wilson.

Please note our earlier update of the search for the killer in which the State Police said one of the men shown in photos circulated by authorities yesterday had been ruled out as having a connection to the case.
