Darren Doyle, story:
A former resident of Edmonson County has been arrested for murder after law enforcement received a tip regarding his whereabouts last week after an Edmonson Voice article was published about the suspect.
Rodney McNutt, (48), of Clarksville, IN was arrested by the U.S. Marshal’s Office and the Louisville Metro Police Department in Louisville on September 24th.
McNutt was wanted for the death of Adam Galloway, 44, who was found dead inside his apartment (according to a report from WDRB in Louisville) at the The Annex of New Albany complex just after 5:15 p.m. Wednesday. McNutt is a former Edmonson County resident with a criminal history in Edmonson County.
According to Sheriff Shane Doyle, an individual called the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office after reading the Edmonson Voice article published on September 21st that listed McNutt as a wanted suspect in a murder case and gave them an address as to where McNutt could be found.
"We immediately contacted the New Albany, Indiana Police Department and relayed this information about the suspect," said Sheriff Doyle.
New Albany Police Chief Todd Bailey said McNutt was arrested at a residence in Valley Station on September 24th and taken to Jefferson County Corrections where he was later extradited to Indiana and eventually Hart County Jail on October 2nd, where he now faces other charges in Edmonson County.
