PALM COAST, FL – After a few days in hiding, 18-year-old Terrell Sampson was found and arrested yesterday for Attempted Second Degree Murder in the Noah Smith homicide. Additionally, 30-year-old Russell Hillard was arrested for harboring a fugitive after deputies spoke with him earlier during their search for Sampson.
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) Major Case Unit (MCU) Detectives, the Fugitive Unit and PACE have been actively and continuously searching for Sampson since a warrant was signed for his arrest earlier this week. Utilizing investigative techniques and with the assistance of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Sampson was ultimately located inside a Wedge Lane residence yesterday afternoon. He eventually surrendered after refusing multiple commands and was taken into custody without further incident. Following his apprehension, Hillard exited the residence and was arrested for his role in hiding the fugitive.
“Today, Sampson has joined his accomplices behind bars alongside six other key-players in the many incidents that occurred throughout the six month long investigation,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “He thought he could run and avoid facing the consequences for his actions but I never break a promise. I warned him that we would get him and we held strong to that. I hope his arrest brings some peace and closure to the families of Noah and Keymarion and that all of these dirtbags are sent away for a long time. I’d like to thank the FDLE, our Crisis Negotiations Team, SWAT and all the deputies involved in apprehending Sampson, including the second guy who thought harboring a fugitive was a good idea.”
