Man once a suspect in East St. Louis murder found shot, killed

Posted: Updated:

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (KMOV.com) – Police believe an East St. Louis man was shot days before his body was found Tuesday night and are now looking for a suspect.

Joshua Custer, 26, was found Tuesday night in an East St. Louis field.

In 2007, Custer was arrested for the murder of Kirk Anthony and spent 20 months in jail. Charges were later dropped when a judge ruled that an East St. Louis police officer broke the law by not recording all of his interview with Custer.

Police are reviewing surveillance footage from a housing complex near the field Custer’s body was found.
