Lebanon, Boone County, Indiana – Prosecuting Attorney Todd J. Meyer announced today that Damoine A. Wilcoxson (DOB: 7/29/1995), a resident of Indianapolis, Indiana was charged with Murder in the September 28th homicide of John A. Clements of Zionsville, Indiana.
According to the Probable Cause Affidavit and Charging Information filed this afternoon in Boone Superior Court I, The Honorable Judge Matthew C. Kincaid presiding, Wilcoxson shot 82 year old John A. Clements to death outside of his home in Zionsville, Indiana on September 28, 2016.
These charges arise out of a joint investigation conducted by the Zionsville Police Department, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the Indiana State Police and the FBI.
According to the Probable Cause Affidavit police investigators believe Wilcoxson is also related to the IMPD headquarters shootings that occurred on October 4th and October 13th.
“As one can see from the Probable Cause Affidavit Wilcoxson is an angry individual who was looking to do harm to innocent people. I am relieved to know that he is now in police custody. My office will now get to work to see that justice is served and that he is successfully prosecuted and convicted for this horrible crime that he is alleged to have committed” said Prosecuting Attorney Todd J. Meyer.
Prosecutor Meyer further stated that “this arrest was made possible by the excellent work done by the multi-jurisdictional team of investigators – very impressive what they accomplished in a short amount of time. As documented in the probable cause affidavit, this arrest was significantly aided by the DNA analysis the investigators were able to perform. This case proves that obtaining DNA samples from arrestees solves crimes and makes our communities safer. Like that of Ohio’s law, Indiana should implement a law that requires DNA sampling at the time of an offender’s arrest.”
Wilcoxson faces a maximum penalty of 65 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for the Murder charge.
An initial hearing on the Charging Information will be scheduled later this week in Boone County Superior Court I.
This investigation is active and ongoing.
The information is an allegation only, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at trial or by guilty plea.
