Western Express Stabbing Suspect Arrested In New York

U.S. Marshals have arrested a man who is wanted in connection with the stabbing death of another man in the Western Express truck lot in Nashville last month.

Christopher Gadsden, 26, was arrested today for his suspected role in the murder of 24 year old Deon Brown.

Brown was found in the secure truck lot on the morning of November 14. According to reports, he was dressed as a woman when he was found near a group of parked trucks. Brown’s vehicle was located in North Carolina the day after his body was discovered, leading police to suspect that Gadsden had driven it there. Police found blood on the exterior and interior of the car.

The arrest was made in New York City.

Nashville police say that Gadsden will be returned to Tennessee. It is unclear exactly what charges Gadsden will face.

This is a developing story.
