Pair, sought in Chicago killing, arrested in Bay Area

06 August 2017

Oxford University employee Andrew Warren, wanted in the U.S. for murder, has been arrested after turning himself in.

Guglielmi said Lathem, an associate professor of microbiology-immunology at Northwestern University, had some kind of relationship with Cornell-Duranleau, who moved to Chicago from MI to work in a salon, but the two had "some type of falling out" before the fatal stabbing.

Professor Wyndham Lathem surrendered at a federal courthouse in Oakland at about 7:30 p.m Pacific Time and the University of Oxford employee Andrew Warren turned himself in to the San Francisco Police Department at around 6:30 p.m.

Warren works as a senior treasury assistant at Somerville College where he is in charge of payroll and pensions.

A manhunt had been underway since July 27 when the body of Trenton Cornell-Duranleau was discovered inside Latham's Chicago apartment says the Tribune.

Police said earlier Friday that Lathem had sent a video to friends apologizing for his involvement in a crime he called the "biggest mistake of my life".

Most recently, North Korea returned American citizen Otto Warmbier to the U.S.in a coma after more than a year of captivity. And he continued to push for Chinese help to keep pressure on North Korea due to their special economic relationship.

Both men - taken into custody without incident - will appear before an Oakland court and are now awaiting extradition to IL, where they will be questioned by Chicago homicide detectives.

Police have identified Lathem, 42, as well as Andrew Warren, 56, an Oxford employee, as suspects in the killing.

Mr Warren and Mr Lathem will appear in court in the coming days.

Warren and Lathem are accused of repeatedly stabbing the victim in the apartment before fleeing. He had been stabbed several times in an attack so brutal that police said the knife broke.

"I've never seen where suspects in a homicide would make a donation in the victim's name", said Lake Geneva police Lt. Edward Gritzner. When police opened the door they found Cornell-Duranleau's body.

Surveillance cameras recorded both suspects leaving Cornell-Duranleau's upscale apartment shortly after the murder, according to police, and authorities issued warrants for their arrest on Wednesday. Ed Grittzner says a person handed a library worker $1,000 in cash.
