The man who might be at least partly responsible for three execution style murders in Marion County 40 years ago has finally been caught.
According to the Associated Press, federal agents have arrested 59-year-old Eddie Jack Washington without incident in Tampa Bay, Florida.
Officers followed Washington from his Tampa home to a grocery store where he was arrested.
Washington was taken to the Tampa police department for further questioning. He was being held without bond at the Hillsborough County Jail. Jail records didn't indicate whether Washington had an attorney.
Police in Fairmont issued a murder warrant for Washington's arrest on Wednesday. The U.S. Marshal's statement says information was recently developed identifying Washington as a suspect in the slayings. The statement didn't elaborate.  
Those three murders were committed in the Windmill Park area in August 1974.
