BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — A man who was recently caught by police in Helena after being sought for a Wisconsin murder is now suspected of being involved with the death of a man in Flomaton, Alabama this week.
Caleb Anderson, a 23-year-old Michigan man, allegedly killed someone in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Tuesday before stealing their car and driving to Alabama, according to police. Now, Anderson is suspected of killing 52-year-old Dwight Dixon, who was found dead Wednesday in Flomaton, according to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.
Anderson was arrested Wednesday after the Green Bay victim’s car was found in Helena.
Anderson is charged with murder and first-degree burglary. He is being held at the Shelby County Jail.
