OLMSTED TOWNSHIP — A Parma man was arrested this morning for the murder of Carl Edward Acoff, Jr., the 20-year-old man whose body was found in a pond on Mackenzie Road April 17.
Andre L. Bridges, 36, is being held in Olmsted Township jail following his arrest by Olmsted Township police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Fugitive Task Force.
Acoff was reported missing by his family in late March, and his body was found by a resident who lives in the apartment next to the retention pond. There were multiple stab wounds in his body, and achain and a concrete block were attached to his waist.
There is still an active investigation going on with this case, according to Olmsted Township Police Chief John Minek.
