Homicide charges have been filed in Waukesha, Wis., after police identified a man based on the Nike sneakers he wore at the scene of the crime. According to police, 35-year-old Justin Carl is the man responsible for shooting and killing Kevin Hueman, 40.
On the night of August 14, police were called to a Waukesha intersection where they found Hueman, a married father of a six-month-old, suffering a number of gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter, as police continued to search for clues by interviewing witnesses and canvassing the area.
Police didn't have much luck speaking with neighbors, but what they did discover was that the suspect had left a Nike sneaker behind, reports Fox 6 Now. The black, white, and green size 10 sneaker, which looks something like the Vandal Low model, was found near Hueman's body and quickly connected to Carl thanks to surveillance footage provided by the Milwaukee VA Medical Center.
Nike representatives then told police that the sneakers were sold exclusively by Kohl's stores from July 2013 to July 2014, and investigators later learned that a female acquaintance of Carl's had purchased four size 10s in the shoes, a fact she corroborated. The women also told police that Carl admitted to the shooting. "You know that shooting we saw on the news? I shot that guy. He attacked me," Carl allegedly said.
Carl was taken into police custody on September 2, where he remains with a bail of $1 million. He'll appear in court on October 30 for a preliminary hearing.
