Authorities in Fall River announced today that they have made an arrest in the city’s only slaying this year.
Rene Gosselin, 26, of Fall River, was arrested this afternoon and charged with murdering 47-year-old Frederick Thompkins, whose body was found in his apartment on Feb. 15.
Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter praised the work of the Fall River Police in apprehending Gosselin.
"As I have said every time we have brought charges in a homicide, it is through the tremendous cooperation and skill of the local police department, our state police unit and my prosecutors, that we are able to achieve our goals," Sutter said.
Gosselin will be arraigned tomorrow in Fall River District Court.
