Massachusetts and New York State Police issued an amber alert for a New York woman and her 4-month-old son. Matthew A. Slocum the suspected kidnapper, was wanted for allegedly committing a triple homicide.
Slocum was arrested in Gilsum, N.H. around 10 p.m. Wednesday after a daylong manhunt.
His black 2003 Ford Mustang was found in New Hampshire hours before police caught up with him.
Slocum’s girlfriend, Loretta Colgrove, and son Raymond Slocum were with him at the time.
Police had described Slocum as nearly 6 feet tall, weighing about 195 pounds, with brown hair and swastika tattoos on his forearms.
They were last seen in Adams around 5 a.m. Wednesday after Slocum allegedly ran from a fatal house fire in White Creek N.Y. that killed Slocum’s mother, her husband, and her husband’s son. Slocum is being questioned in connection with that fire and the slayings of the three people.
