A Man Suspected of Killing 2 in Auburn is Arrested in Maryland
A man suspected of killing two people in an Auburn home has been caught in Maryland.
Maine Department of Public Safety Spokesperson Shannon Moss says 34-year-old David 'Slim' Barnett of Bristol, Connecticut was arrested in Rockville, Maryland on Friday afternoon on a murder warrant. He's accused of killing 21-year-old Kelzie Caron and 21-year-old Pierre Langlois of Connecticut at a residence at 49 Fourth Street in Auburn. He was taken into custody, without incident, near an apartment complex for the murder warrant, as well as a nationwide warrant out of New York for a parole violation on a prior robbery charge.
Auburn Police were called to the Fourth Street location on June 19th, for a report of a person who had suffered a cardiac arrest. When they arrived, they found Caron and Langlois deceased inside the residence. So far, police have not commented on how the two people died, or given any motive for the killings. They also have not revealed who made the original 911 call, reporting a person experiencing a heart attack.
Barnett was sent to the Montgomery County Corrections Center in Maryland, pending an extradition hearing. Moss says the Maine State Police and Auburn Police Detectives have been building this case with their interstate partners at the local, state, and federal levels in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, and Maryland.
The investigation into the murders is ongoing. Anyone who thinks they may have information pertinent to this case is encouraged to contact the Auburn Police Department or the Maine State Police.
