Sudbury Police Arrest Sudbury Man in Connection with Double Homicide in the U.S. Virgin Islands
SUDBURY — Police Chief Scott Nix reports that a Sudbury man is in custody today at the Sudbury Police Department after he was arrested in connection with the murder of his parents.
MIKHAIL YOUNG, AGE 24, OF SUDBURY, is currently charged with Being a Fugitive from Justice after he allegedly killed his parents, both Sudbury residents, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The victims have been identified as Kenneth Young, age 73, and Jane Young, age 66. Authorities in the U.S. Virgin Islands found the couple stabbed to death on Sunday afternoon.
On Monday at approximately 8 p.m., the U.S. Virgin Islands Police Department contacted the Sudbury Police Department regarding the double homicide.
It is believed YOUNG fled the Virgin Islands and then returned to Massachusetts. Sudbury Police officers located and arrested him on a warrant for a probation violation. YOUNG is known to police.
YOUNG is being held at the Sudbury Police Department pending official receipt of homicide charges from authorities in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
“This is a horrific crime where the suspect allegedly killed his own parents,” Chief Nix said. “The Sudbury Police Department is working closely with officials in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and I am proud of the work of our officers to quickly apprehend this dangerous suspect.”
“My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the victims during this most difficult time.”
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
