Maine triple homicide suspect arrested in Massachusetts

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — One of two men sought on fugitive from justice warrants in connection with a triple homicide in Bangor on Aug. 13 reportedly has been arrested.

Randall “Ricky” Daluz, 34, was arrested Tuesday in New Bedford, Mass., about 40 miles from his hometown of Brockton, Mass., a reporter for The Standard-Times, a New Bedford newspaper, said Tuesday evening.

Anika Clark confirmed the arrest with New Bedford Police Chief David Provencher at the request of the Bangor Daily News. The details of Daluz’s arrest — such as when and where it took place and who was involved — were not immediately available.

The other suspect, Nicholas J. Sexton, 31, of Warwick, R.I., reportedly remains at large.

Calls by the Bangor Daily News to a number of police departments and officials involved in the case were not immediately returned.

Provencher told Clark that police from Bangor and Fall River, Mass., were involved in the arrest, but said he had not yet been briefed on all of the details.

Daluz and Sexton have been charged with three counts of knowing or intentional murder and one count of arson, Bangor police Lt. Tim Reid said earlier this week.

The charges stem from what Bangor police have characterized as a drug-related homicide.

Sexton and Daluz, who is also nicknamed “Money,” are wanted in connection to the deaths of Daniel T. Borders, 26, of Hermon; Nicolle A. Lugdon, 24, of Eddington; and Lucas A. Tuscano, 28, of Bradford, whose bodies were found burned beyond recognition inside a white Pontiac sedan with Rhode Island plates that was discovered on fire early on Aug. 13.

Sexton and Daluz were secretly indicted by the Penobscot County grand jury on Sept. 26, after which the fugitive from justice warrants were issued.

Daluz was arrested at gunpoint by Orono police officers on June 6, 2006, for stabbing a 30-year-old Swanville man at the Irving station in Orono. He was charged with aggravated assault and criminal threatening and in 2007 was sentenced to a year in prison for the crimes, the BDN listings state.

He also was sentenced in March for illegal importation of scheduled drugs and received 90 days in jail and a fine of $400.

Anyone with information about Sexton’s whereabouts is asked to call the Bangor Police Department at 947-7382. The department’s anonymous tip line can be reached by pressing ext. 6.

Howe many times???

How many times does this creep need to be arrested before they lock the doors and throw away the keys. This jerk obviously isn't going to follow any laws because he must think they are for everyone else but him. This is so typical of our broken system...we need to make changes in the length of time people serve for the crimes they have commited...enoough with letting them out early..
