U.S. Marshalls arrest Baltimore suspect in North Carolina homicide

BALTIMORE - A Baltimore man was arrested in Frederick and charged with first-degree murder and assault  that allegedly took place North Carolina, according to U.S. Marshals.

Reginald Odell Jr., 34, was charged with allegedly murdering Dorian Miles, a mother of three, and shooting Hasson M. Pressley in the chest in Lileville, N.C. No motive of the shooting has been released yet.

The victims and the shooter were partying together on Dec. 30, 2013 before shots were fired around 3 a.m, according to Anson County Sheriff Detectives, where Lileville is located.

Investigators questioned Odell just after the shooting, but warrants were not filed until three days later.

Local North Carolina law enforcement conducted a search for Odell in Lileville, but believed he had fled the state following the warrants being issued. They discovered that Odell was originally from Baltimore and still had family in Windsor Mill and Aberdeen.

U.S. Marshals Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force made contact with Odell's family, which refused to cooperate fully with the investigation and did not want to be involved, the marshals said.

However, U.S. Marshals developed information that Odell was in the Baltimore area and that friends and family had assisted in him eluding arrest.

Odell was discovered in the Frederick apartment of registered sex offender Forte Goodman. Odell is currently awaiting extradition back to North Carolina to face the charges.
