A South Paris man was arrested as a fugitive from justice earlier this week.
On Aug. 12, 2020, at approximately 1 p.m., Troopers from Troop B and Agents from the Maine Violent Offender Task Force (US Marshals Service), apprehended Aaron Parsons, 43, of South Paris, ME, at a residence on Gary Street in South Paris. Parsons was wanted on a warrant from Massachusetts State Police charging him with homicide and a sex assault offense. The offense occurred in March of 2020 but a warrant was not issued until Aug. 11, 2020.
Mass. State Police received a tip earlier today and the Maine Violent Offender Task Force, acting on that tip, met with troopers from Troop B and coordinated the apprehension. Parsons was arrested without incident, charged as a Fugitive From Justice and transported to the Oxford County jail. He will be arraigned on Friday morning.
