A 16 year old was arrested and charged over the murder of a newlywed named Nathan Trapuzzano. The newlywed was shot dead as he was taking morning stroll.
Simeon Adams, known by the nickname ‘Red’, is alleged to have confessed to a friend that he shot Nathan once in the stomach. The newlywed was expecting his first child. Adams made Trapuzzano strip and then murdered him during the robbery.
Adams’ friend Marvell Robinson told detectives he was woken up by the alleged shooter on the morning of April 1 at his home in Indianapolis. Adams told him: ‘Man the police is out here and they are looking for me.’
Robinson told detectives Adams made Nathan strip, according to the court papers. ‘When he told Nathan to take his pants off the victim started reaching for his shoes and Simeon asked him (Nathan) “Why you reaching for your shoes?”. Simeon said the “white man tried to tussle with me so I shot him”‘.
