NAPLES, FL (KSLA) -

A Natchitoches Parish murder suspect wanted in connection with a home invasion and murder in Creston last week has been captured in the Florida Everglades.

According to Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Victor Jones Jr., 48-year-old Alan Virgil Brumfield of Natchitoches was captured Tuesday morning around 9 a.m. in South Florida near Naples in connection with the home invasion and fatal shooting of 37-year-old Ted Charles Brou on October 13.

The NPSO 911 Center took a call just before midnight Sunday reporting a home invasion at 233 Willie Walker Road in Creston. Officers arrived to find Brou shot to death.

While Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's detectives gathered evidence and began executing search warrants, an All Points Bulletin (APB) was issued, including a description of Brumfield and his car.

On Sunday, Collier County Sheriff's deputies found Brumfield's Nissan Sentra abandoned in Naples, Florida.

Collier County Sheriff's deputies and Florida Fish and Wildlife Agents issued broadcasts notifying local law enforcement of the murder suspect likely being in the area.

Sheriff Jones says law enforcement tips to Collier County Sheriff's Deputies Monday morning is what led to Brumfield's capture. "Reportedly Brumfield was wet during his capture, while hiding in the Everglades."

Brumfield, has been booked into the Collier County Detention Center on charges out of Natchitoches Parish for first degree murder, home invasion and second degree kidnapping.

Sheriff Jones said that the deputies and the Natchitoches Parish District Attorney's Office are waiting to see if Brumfield will sign extradition before being transported to Natchitoches.
