INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 29, 2016) – An Indianapolis murder suspect was apprehended in Wisconsin and brought back to Indianapolis to face charges.
Cordero Pinex, 20, is accused of shooting and killing Joshua Neloms in June 2015 at the Rodeway Inn in the 3500 block of North Shadeland Avenue. Charges against him include murder and carrying a handgun without a license.
The shooting happened on June 14, 2015, and officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were dispatched just after 11 p.m. IMPD circulated surveillance pictures of two men believed to be involved in the shooting. Both were seen running from the area around the same time; cameras at a Thornton’s gas station at 7020 E. Pendleton Pike captured images of the men before the homicide.
Detectives obtained a warrant for Cordero’s arrest last year. However, he evaded authorities until he was captured in Wisconsin. Police said he was extradited back to Indianapolis and booked into the Arrestee Processing Center on Feb. 23, 2016.
