Louisiana man arrested, accused of killing 3 homeless people

Authorities in Louisiana say a man has been arrested in connection with the deaths of three homeless people

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Authorities in Louisiana announced Thursday that a man has been arrested in connection to the deaths of three homeless people.

Paul said evidence found inside Anderson's home helped link him to the murders.

The first two killings happened on Dec. 13 when Christina Fowler, 53, and Gregory Corcoran, 40, were found fatally shot underneath an overpass, huddled in blankets beside an empty shopping cart. On Dec. 27, investigators discovered 50-year-old Tony Williams shot to death on the porch of a vacant home about two blocks away from where Fowler and Corcoran were found.

Paul said Anderson lives two blocks away from where both shootings occurred.

A motive for the crimes wasn't immediately released. It's unclear whether Anderson has an attorney who can comment on his behalf.
