December 09, 2008 00:00



On Monday, December 8, 2008, members of the US Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force arrested 30-year-old Jerrin Lavazie Hickman on one count of Murder in connection with the death of 25-year-old Christopher Adam Monette. The investigation began on December 31, 2007, at approximately 11:48 pm, when officers responded to a disturbance call with possible shots fired in the 8400 block of Northeast Thompson Street. Monette was found deceased and Homicide Detectives were called to the scene to initiate an investigation.
