ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The man who was recently charged in a 26-year-old cold case was extradited to the St. Louis area Wednesday.
Earl Webster Cox, 61, is charged with murder, kidnapping and sodomy. He is accused of kidnapping Angie Housman, 9, after she got off a school bus in St. Ann in 1993. Authorities say he then took her to a secluded area in St. Charles County, sexually assaulted her and tied her to a tree, leaving her to die.
Cox has been serving time at a federal facility in North Carolina and was deemed a “sexually dangerous person” by the courts for unrelated criminal convictions.
He arrived at the St. Charles County Jail Wednesday and authorities released his mugshot.
