  • Law Enforcement personnel leave Wednesday to search for John Williams

Police in central ME arrested a man accused of killing a police officer this week, ending a four-day manhunt, a sheriff said Saturday afternoon.

State Police Lt. Col. John Cote said authorities have interviewed family and friends of Williams and now have a good understanding of his whereabouts and activities in the 24 hours leading up to the shooting.

Somerset County Sheriff Dale Lancaster said at a news conference Thursday they have some belief that Williams is still in the area.

Williams, 29, has a drug problem according to those close to him and we know he had run-ins with police in the past. Mr. Williams, be assured you'll be treated the same way Corporal Cole would have treated you, if you had given him the opportunity, with dignity and respect.

Williams faces illegal firearms charges locally after an earlier arrest in Haverhill.

Derrius Guice selected No. 59 overall by Redskins
In a surprise move, the Redskins traded the 44th and 142nd overall picks to San Francisco to move back in the order. We tried to get to know them as a person and see how they fit in and we felt like he'll fit in just fine.

Police declined to say if Williams was armed, but they confirmed they were seeking a search warrant for the camp.

After his arrest, Williams was put in the handcuffs of Cole, the deputy he allegedly killed, and was taken to the Waterville Police Department to be interviewed by detectives after emergency medical service personnel found that he had not suffered any injuries, Cote said.

Somerset County Sheriff's Department has not released a motive for Wednesday's crime.

Some 200 law enforcement members in the area spent the past four days searching for Williams. Williams then reportedly stole the officer's police cruiser, which he then used to rob a convenience store.

The FBI is now offering a monetary reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to his location and arrest.

Cole's death marks the first time a ME police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty in almost 30 years.

Williams went to Skowhegan High School and was the vice president of his sophomore class.

On Saturday, the slain deputy's wife made a personal appeal to his killer to turn himself in, or at least talk to police.

"We requested the amount we thought was appropriate, which was $10,000", Kimball Monahan said.

"We just want you to talk to someone", she added.
