Robinson Extradited to Caddo for 2004 Murder
A man wanted for a murder that occurred in Caddo Parish more than ten years ago is now behind bars here.
60-year-old Jake Robinson was located and arrested in Claremore, OK, where he had been living for several years, but he refused to come back to Caddo willingly. Following an extradition process, deputies with the Caddo Sheriff's Warrants Division went to Oklahoma and picked him up. He's now been booked into Caddo Correctional Center on a charge of second-degree murder. His bond is set at $500,000.
Robinson is accused of murdering Harold Bruce Cotton in February of 2004. His body was found in his car that was pulled to the shoulder of White Springs Road in south Caddo Parish. He had been missing for three days.
Caddo Sheriff's Detective Terry Richardson has been following leads in the case for the past ten years. But the case had become pretty cold until last year, when publicity on the 9-year anniversary of the homicide generated new witnesses. That provided enough evidence to take the case before a Caddo Parish Grand Jury, which indicted Robinson in May.
