Watertown, Connecticut -According to the arrest warrant issued on Thursday, a UPS employee accused of fatally assaulting his colleague who was helping deliver packages told police that he stabbed the man before escaping into the woods. According to CBS Hartford branch WFSB-TV, his arrest was carried out after 15 hours of raids.
On Wednesday afternoon, when state police officers detained him at a gas station in Plymouth, Bristol’s 19-year-old Ilya David Bertrand asked the police officer: “Did you take so long to find me?” According to Warrant.
WFSB said the document stated that Bertrand was discovered after using a debit card at a gas station.
Bertrand was filed for murder on Thursday, accusing him of killing Nathan Burk, a 28-year-old UPS driver in Waterbury. The arrest warrant stated that Bertrand was Burke̵
The motivation is unclear.
WFSB stated that Bertrand’s margin was maintained at $2 million.
His lawyer Robert Pickering asked for a reduction in contact, arguing that Bertrand would not be at risk of flying and had close ties to the state. Betrand plans to appear in court again on January 6.
Pickering told the Associated Press that the case was “a terrible thing for all parties involved,” especially considering that the case occurred before Christmas and during the coronavirus pandemic.
He said: “The sympathy of my client’s family is incredible.” “Whether my client is responsible for it or not, this young man’s death will not happen during the holidays.”
Governor Josou Dorelus said at a news conference on Wednesday that Bertrand and Burk were clearly in the same car. According to the arrest warrant, the two stopped for dinner at Burke’s girlfriend’s house and stayed for about an hour before allowing them to hand in the UPS truck.
About half an hour later, Burke’s girlfriend started calling her boyfriend because the house was near the UPS warehouse at the time, and he hoped he could go home. The arrest warrant said, but the call was not answered.
The troops initially responded to calls involving UPS truck accidents in Watertown on Tuesday evening. They spotted the car on the north-facing shoulder of Highway 8. Burke was unresponsive and fell onto the steering wheel, appearing to be stabbed.
The arrest warrant stated that a folding knife with blood on it was found at the scene. Bertrand’s father later confirmed to the police that it belonged to his son. Waterbury State University lawyer Maureen Platt (Maureen Platt) said in court that Burke was stabbed eight times.
Burke was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.
On Wednesday, dozens of Burk’s relatives and colleagues gathered outside the Watertown UPS facility. Many people say they want answers.
A person who told the World Financial Services Association said: “We all want to know. We all want to know why.”
In an interview with NBC Connecticut TV, Kerry Langdeau of Waterbury said: “It’s heartbreaking…. He is such a good person.”
Sean O’Brien, secretary and treasurer of Teamsters Joint Council 10, said: “Get up in the morning and prepare to send 200 packages home. He will never go home again.”
