IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (WJMN) – On Friday, Alabama Law Enforcement Agency released the following press release about Caleb Anderson from Iron County, the suspect in a Green Bay, Wisconsin homicide and on Tuesday and the assault of a Gaastra woman on Monday.
On Wednesday, Aug. 3, at the request of Flomaton Police Chief Chance Thompson, Special Agents with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) launched a homicide investigation into the death of Dwight Dixon, 52, of Flomaton. Dixon was found deceased when officers from the Flomaton Police Department responded to an emergency call on Dixon Road, in Flomaton. ALEA Special Agents successfully utilized a variety of resources as well as investigative methods, which enabled them to identify the suspect as 23-year-old Caleb Scott Anderson, of Michigan. Anderson is also wanted by officers with the Green Bay Police Department in connection to a separate homicide which was reported in Green Bay, Wis. on Aug. 2.
On Wednesday, Aug. 3, Intelligence Analysts within ALEA’s Fusion Center (AFC) received information and created a statewide law enforcement bulletin on behalf of the Green Bay Police Department and the United States Marshals (USMS) Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force of a possible murder suspect traveling in Alabama. Once the bulletin was released, Intelligence Analysts quickly began receiving tips from local police departments which assisted ALEA Special Agents in identifying Anderson as the suspect and led to the discovery of evidence which linked him to murders in both states. Anderson was located while operating a stolen vehicle and was arrested by the USMS Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force and officers with the
Helena Police Department in the afternoon of Wednesday, Aug. 3, in Helena. Anderson is currently being charged with Murder and First-Degree Burglary and is being held in the Shelby County Jail without bond.
“I would like to commend all of ALEA’s Special Agents, Troopers and the AFC’s Intelligence Analysts who worked tirelessly along with our local, state and federal partners to quickly identify the suspect and assist in locating him for apprehension,” said SBI Director Chris Inabinett. “This is a true testament to the hard work, dedication and ALEA’s consolidated law enforcement services that our investigators and analysts conduct on a daily basis to assist law enforcement agencies around the state and to help bring justice for the victims and their families of such heinous crimes.”
Nothing further is available as the investigation is ongoing. Once complete, the findings will be
turned over to the Escambia County District Attorney’s Office.
