NPPD: Joseph Herrick Has Been Captured In Nokomis
Stabbing suspect captured. 25-yr-old Joseph Herrick was located and arrested in Nokomis this morning. Friday night we began an investigation on Myrtlewood Ave in regards to the attempted murder. We believe it was an isolated incident. The suspect and victim are familiar with each other. The Victim is 24-yr-old Randal Casady of North Port. He was taken as a trauma alert. He is recovering from his wounds.
Herrick has a history of using sharp objects. In 2008, the then 17-yr-old Herrick went to prison for stabbing someone he knew.
We would like to thank the Sarasota County (FL) Sheriff’s Office for their help in capturing Herrick Monday morning.
