One person believed to involved in the killing of a postal service worker is in custody, records show.
The U.S. government was offering up to $50,000 for help identifying the person who shot and killed 58-year-old Tony Mosby as he drove on Interstate 30 early Monday. His U.S. Postal Service 18-wheeler had crashed against a guardrail on a ramp to Interstate 35E, not far from the main post office just west of downtown.
Postal service inspection detectives were searching a home Wednesday night in the 500 block of Murray Street in Hutchins on Thursday morning. A spokeswoman for the service referred all questions to the U.S. attorney’s Dallas office, which could not immediately be reached for comment.
Authorities told KXAS-TV (NBC 5) that they had arrested someone in connection with Mosby’s death.
The suspect’s name was not released, but Dallas County jail records show Donnie Ferrell, 25, was booked in on a murder charge early Thursday. The U.S. postal inspection service had placed a hold on his case, jail records show.
No other details were available.
