Jeffrey McAdam's murder suspect possessed gun

Authorities have revealed more details regarding the capture of the man accused of murdering maintenance worker Jeffrey McAdam. Johnson county deputies found Peter Riggs with the murder weapon, according to the Iowa County sheriff.
Iowa County Sheriff Robert Rotter said a Johnson County Sheriff’s Deputy arrested Riggs between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. Saturday night, about three hours after the shooting.

“A hand gun was the murder weapon and the weapon was found in Riggs possession,” Rotter wrote in an e-mail to various media.

McAdam had a single gunshot wound, authorities said, but Rotter would not say Tuesday where the wound was located.

“There has been no information come to light thus far that indicates the suspect and victim ever met before the murder,” Rotter wrote.

Police Say I-80 Murder Suspect Had Handgun Used In Crime
There were several factors that assisted law enforcement officers in apprehending the suspect. One of which is that many rest stops have cameras located in the buildings and pointed to the parking area. A surveillance society is only good at catching the bastards after the crime has been committed.

Let's hope the right guy was caught.
