Nintendo Switch Leads Alabama Police to Arrests in the Slaying of a Professor
Believe it or not a Nintendo Switch is being credited for leading authorities in Alabama to two men who are being accused of mugging and slaying of an economics professor in South Alabama.
The District Attorney in Mobile County has said that the suspect who broke into Matthew Wiser’s house on November 20th stole a Nintendo Switch gaming system, and after a few weeks of investigations, police were able to track down Tiquez Timmons when they traced the systems gaming activity online.
The Chief of Police in Mobile named Lawrence Battiste said that they didn’t have much evidence to go on, but gave praise to the investigator who was, “able to pick out the most minute of things,” and was able to act in order to crack the case. Derric and Timmons Scott we both apprehended and charged on Friday, they both pleaded not guilty inside of a Mobile courtroom early Wednesday.
Prosecuting attorneys believes the crime had taken place during a home invasion and was randomly chosen, “Timmons would drop off Scott to burglarize houses and would pick him up and they would repeat the behavior somewhere else,” say District Attorney Keith Blackwood during the court proceedings.
He then added that the burglary had a pattern to it and claims that Scott was the one who had fired the gun that took the life of Matthew Wiser.
