The Green Bay Police Department says the suspect in an April homicide investigation, Terry Lee Shepard, has been interviewed by detectives and admitted to shooting the victim, claiming self defense.
Shepard was taken into custody in Kenosha Thursday after Racine Police say he strangled a woman he met online. Green Bay police conducted their interview while he was being held by the Racine Police Department. It is not known if when Shepard will be brought back to Brown County to face charges.
Police have been searching for Shepard since April 15 in connection to the shooting death of Steven Sims in the 1100 block of Stuart St. The Green Bay Police Department says they have been working with several law enforcement agencies to locate Shepard since the April shooting.
The Racine Police Department finally located Shepard when they responded to a home last Tuesday after receiving a call from a woman who said she had been strangled, tied up, and robbed. The victim told police she met the suspect on an online chatting website and invited him to her home.
Police say the suspect, later identified as Shepard, strangled her into unconsciousness and locked her in the basement. Officers say he also threatened to harm the victim's children.
Officers say Shepard's cousin, Marqanette Shepard, assisted him in the crime. Marqanette and Terry Lee Shepard were both taken into custody Thursday and charges are expected to be filed soon.
