Comments for: Triple murder suspect nabbed in overnight raid, fights extradition to Maine

The Massachusetts State Police SWAT team, FBI and local police had their guns drawn as they ambushed and arrested triple murder suspect Nicholas J. Sexton early Thursday morning during a “no-knock” raid in Brockton, Mass. Sexton, 31, of Warwick, R.I., was arrested at a… Read More

    • I’m sure the truth will be told and we will find out that this gentleman had a terrible childhood and upbringing which makes it very difficult for him to form good relationships with others. I feel that he has trust issues. Hopefully he will get the psychiatric help that he needs when he returns to Bangor and is able to get past these issues.

        You seem to possess a tremendous amount of insight. I really feel he would get some help at Acadia Hospital.

  • Look for the Feds to be heavily involved.  Possible “Armed Career Criminal” charges.  Drug connection, multiple homicides, crossing state line to commit drug-related homicide, possible Federal death penalty case?  Mainers can only hope that these thugs don’t have enough valuable information so Feds intervene and cut a “witness protection” deal.  Food for thought.

    • Davida Willette

      they already are involved did the raid to get sexton

  • Given the crimes for which they were previously convicted, why were they out on the street in the first place?  Maine people need to start asking some serious questions of our prosecutors, judges, and correctional officials.

      it’s because our justice system is too lenient on criminals.

      murderers walk free when they should be executed, 
      rapists get out after a few short years, or maybe even months after ruining the lives of young girls/boys.
      and most of them strike again.

      time to bring back the death penalty, if you’re found guilty of murder, off to the firing squad.

      most of these cases do not go to trial. there’s enough to do so, but the criminals are offered a deal to avoid stiffer sentences in exchange for guilty pleas, information, testifying against others, etc. this saves the state (every state, not just Maine) a lot of money and resources and ensures a conviction. I’m not endorsing this process; just pointing it out.

      & New Bedford PDs couldn’t wait to share the details on what they knew from

      very little from the BPD from the very beginning.  Quiet professionalism.  These guys seem to be pretty damn good.

        The Brockton and New Bedford cops were probably just relieved that the actual mayhem happened somewhere other than in their jurisdiction for once.  These are not, you understand, among the nation’s idyllic model communities.

       “I did want to take a second to say what a great job the police did in catching these guys.”

      Are you kidding? The Maine cops kept the indictments and identities a secret for weeks, and these guys were walking around amongst the public.

      Within days of police in Massachusetts leaking the info about the indictment, these guys were off the street.

      You should be outraged at how incompetently the Maine police acted, and how they put citizens in danger.

        • Melting Granite

           patriott:   Maine kept the names and indictments a secret.  as soon as a cop (or dispatcher) in Mass leaked the info, boom, these guys were caught.

          they were not caught due to outstanding police work; they were caught because of the public knowledge of their names as indicted suspects.  one gave himself up, the other was located due to a public tip.

          without public knowledge of their names, those suspects would not have been in custody.

          do you seriously not understand that?

          • Briney

            Facts speak differently.  BPD detectives  tried to question Sexton within a day or two after the murders.  He refused to talk to them.

            As for keeping suspects names secret, BPD has no authority to release names if indictments are being sought through a Grand Jury.  Secret indictments mean just that.  Everything is secret until the suspects are caught.

            Your demeaning evaluation of the BPD detective’s work in the case, and your interpretation of how the arrests were achieved, is attributable to  your lack of knowledge about the cases.

            The news stories clearly show that the BDP detectives were onto Sexton the day the bodies were discovered. 

            Bangor has a great police department.  And, it looks like I’m not the only one who appreciates the fantastic job they do each day. The relatives of the slain appeared extremely grateful to the Bangor detectives.

            It is easy to rave about what you would do.  However, the police have to work within the boundaries of the laws especially when the Grand Jury sits. 

            Your comment also reminds me of one made after police captured a burglary suspect by having his  picture recorded on a store video camera.  The commentator moaned  that police wouldn’t have caught him,  had it not have been for the camera.  I’m still pondering that, along with your recent comment.

      Tell that to the sons or daughters of a rape/murder victim. The people that commit these crimes are cruel and unusual so it makes sense to me to punish them in the same way they punished their innocent victims.

      Both these guys have been arrested in Maine before.  By all accounts Sexton lived (where his leased car was registered) in Rhode Island.  The guy Sexton was in business with lived (born) here in Maine.  Obviously his customers were here, or he (and money) would not have come to “Vacationland”

       Sure, they were tailing Sexton, keeping him under surveillance, until they received a tip where he was, then they decided to bust in on him with a no-knock warrant.

      Sorry, fact is, these guys were only caught because their identities were leaked by law enforcement in Mass. Maine kept their IDs secret, and they remained in the community for weeks.

      As soon as the public found out who was wanted for the crimes, these guys were picked up —- one surrendered, and the other got nailed because of a tip.

       What a great post. I think the beauty of anonymously posting on sites like these is that in some ways it allow us to speak our minds unfiltered. Doing that we say things out of emotion at times that creates controversy but that’s ok because we all have to deal with the cold hard facts of situations through our daily travels. To me, no apology necessary at all. Blowing off steam about a new story that gets printed that hits nerves that you respond about is the basis for most of these comments.

      All that said, the PD did do an excellent job. The level of detail they had to sift through before making an arrest in this case was greatly beyond what many might consider typical. Now we get to see how it plays out from here, like who was the guy that pulled the trigger.

           Ok. This will be my last reply to your comments. You clearly do not understand how it works. I will spell it our real slow and easy for you to read….OK? Good. Now PAY ATTENTION.

          1. Crime gets committed.
          2. PD investigates the crime.
          3. Many leads and tips come in hourly that need to be investigated.
          4. Rumors have to be investigated.
          5. Once the PD has that little thing called EVIDENCE they present it to a judge to get a warrant.
          6. The judge might feel not enough evidence is provided and ask them to go get more evidence.
          7. Thousands of text messages and calls from anyone potentially involved have to be subpoenaed and researched then tied in to the evidence that exists.
          8. The new evidence is presented to a judge.
          9. A warrant or secret indictment is issued. The authorities then coordinate with other authorities across state lines where they more than likely know the perps currently reside.
          10. A take down strategy is then planned
          11. If successful, then the fun of interviewing begins.
          12. Court
          13. Lawyers pleading their case
          14. Judge or Jury Ruling
          15. Sentencing
          16. Next

          I left a lot of details out, not to bore you (really confuse you)  but you can be certain your PD, if you live in Bangor that is, has done an excellent job being as thorough and  cautious as they had to be in order to get these two men to justice.

          Have a nice night.

          • Melting Granite

             You are forgetting what happened between 9 and 10. The only reason these guys are in custody right now is because LE in Mass blabbed about the secret indictment.

            Yes, BPD and other Maine LE did their jobs, but keeping important info from the public obviously failed them.

            As soon as the public knew WHO the suspects were, they were nabbed.  MAINE WANTED TO KEEP THE INFO SECRET.  Mass leaked it, and rightfully so.  You DON’T hide the IDs of people you want to track down!

          • Briney

            Obviously, you neglected to read the news stories and the post in answer to your previous misconceptions about the Bangor PD detectives. 

            The BPD was onto both suspects  immediately after the bodies were discovered. Bangor PD tried to talk with Sexton – it says so in the story – but he refused. 

            Trying to put down a police department that has worked so hard and so fast to nab these two suspects, is deplorable.

            Allowing your imagination to overrule the actuality of circumstances and the facts in the case, is a waste of time.

    UPDATE JUST IN:

    BROCKTON. BROCKTON ENTERPRISE — Oct 04, 2012 8AM

    Police stormed into a Brockton home early Thursday and captured a man wanted in connection with the slayings of three people in Maine whose bodies were found in a burning car.

    Nicholas Sexton, 31, a former city resident, and Randall “Ricky” Daluz, 34, of Taunton, were indicted on murder charges in Maine more than a week ago. Daluz was captured in New Bedford on Tuesday and Sexton was found in a woman’s home in Brockton early Thursday.

    Three bodies were found inside a burning car with Rhode Island plates in a Bangor parking lot early on Aug. 13. Maine authorities have said the victims were shot before the car was torched.

    At about 4 a.m. Thursday, the State Police tactical operations team, along with FBI agents and Brockton police went to a woman’s home at 771 North Montello St., and executed a “no knock” search warrant. They arrested Sexton and he was scheduled to be in Brockton District Court on Thursday to be arraigned as a fugitive.

    Maine prosecutors plan to charge him with three counts of murder and arson.

    Daluz was arraigned Wednesday in New Bedford. Bangor, Maine police questioned him for several hours on Tuesday. “We had received information from Fall River police that he was in the city and had made arrangements through a friend to give himself up,” New Bedford police Detective Capt. Steven Vicente said. Sexton used to live in Brockton and has had several criminal cases in Brockton District Court, the most recent one from 2005.

    The Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension team, along with Rhode Island State Police, FBI agents and U.S. Marshals worked together to track Sexton to Brockton.

            Actually there are zero states that support “wrapping a tire around someones mid section and setting it on fire with gasoline” and then “putting it out with an axe” which is what started me down this path.

          • i understand how u feel about the death penalty, i use to feel the same way. i said y kill them when they can suffer so much more rotting in jail. then my friend Nicolle Ashley Lugden was shot n then set on fire and it changed everything! y should the criminal be able to wake up every morning? Nicolle cant… y should the criminal be able to see their families even though its thru bars? Nicolle will never get to watch her daughter grow up. i changed my mind because when something like this happens to the people u love it changes everything! not to mention if these two scumbags get life, who do u think pays for them to live out the rest of their lives? the friends and families of the victims! y should money come out of my hard earned paycheck to help pay for my friends murderer to live out the rest of his life when he stole such a beautiful soul. a person who touched everyone she met. y should he get to live out the rest of his life when he ended such a beautiful persons life way to soon. ill always miss her!

            Hard evidence should be the determining factor. Without hard evidence the case which would yield capital punishment. Hard evidence is not the same as circumstantial. With the DNA of today, there should be no problem. An eye witness would not even be enough to mete out capital punishment because even that is not hard, physical evidence. Perhaps some posters are too defensive about this issue.

            You will not get a straight answer. Perifunl has an attitude of forgiveness. But, if the crime of murder or rape was in her own family or herself, she would sing a different tune. It is easy for the one who has never been involved to have that all forgiving attitude. In reality, that all forgiving stops when crime hits home.

            Ok lets stop enforcing the speeding laws . Make it publicly know no more tickets . Same for stealing and see what happens.   

          • Your argument is greatly flawed in that people still speed, and people still steal.  In fact people have been “punished” since the begining of humanity, and crime has gotten progressively worse. 

            Are you suggesting that those people who do not speed now will start speeding, that those people who do not steal will buy a black mask, only because ofp unishment?

            I personally know that is not true.

          • Henderson bobby

            I would be willing people would steal if they knew they would not be punished. Try leaving your wallet full of money on the street 100 times and watch to see who takes it. I would bet half the ones who steal have never been caught. The laws that I obey that make no sense to me are only because I might get a ticket. Like seat belt laws . It is way safer to drive my truck than a bike . I obey the non sense because it is enforced no other reason.

            Maybe the death penalty does not deter crime. But it damn sure prevents a killer from killing anyone else. There are some people who present such a danger to the public that they are like rabid animals,and there is only one way to deal with that circumstance.  I know this is not a popular point of view, but it is a realistic one.

          “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth….” Letting them back on the streets after they stabbed others, allowed them to go on to murder and torch a car with the bodies. Perhaps, strict punishment might not rehabilitate these two or the many others like them, but it would instill a fear of the punishment that would be used if someone thought about committing the same crimes.  Warnings of punishment do not work—punishing serves as a great communicator.

            Perhaps you feel this way because you have never experienced the violent death of a loved one at the hands of those who have so little regard for others. When it is your child, mother, father, sister, grandmother, grandfather, or husband, you just might change your mind. Often I have thought that the murderer and rapist should be handed over to the family of the victim for punishment, then there will be justice. Courts do not consider the anguish of the victim. Courts do not look at the horror faced by that innocent one who was tortured before death. Maybe it is time for those who commit the crime to have it done to them as they did to their victim.

You did not respond to my query regarding what you would do when it is your family member tortured, brutalized, murdered. Most victims do not die easily and suffer great torment.

            It has been proven many times over that punishments do not deter crime. Criminals do not anticipate being caught. If the person breaking the law never thinks they will be caught, why would the outcome of getting caught weigh into their decision making process?

    Bangor police did a great job.   Police work at its best. The same great work in tracking down the vandals with their anti-Semitic slogans.  

    Public awareness of what is happening, with a push made to rectify the current situation, would be a major step forward. 

    How?  Begin at home. Tie-in with teachers.  Educate the children, and counsel those who drift.  Replace Methadone Clinics with Drug Rehabilitation Centers. Dorothea Dix would make an excellent centralized location to begin.

    Push for changes in the laws governing bail and how its administered.  Anxious politicians eager to stay in Augusta, might help.

    i hope this isn’t another one of maine’s “mystery” cases where Daluz (because he can be considered an informant) gets 25 years with all but 6 suspended. I’m willing to bet Sexton will get life with no parole. I just wish Maine had a death penalty. I hope each; in their own time enjoy bubba’s company.

    Don’t believe me? In dover foxcroft just last year a guy killed his own brother and only got 8 years in prison. Another guy just 2 days ago got sentenced to 9 years for killing his “best friend”.

    Don’t let either of these two get anything less than life without parole. They made the mistake of letting out Sexton on light punishment for assault before. There is no need for this to happen again. Enjoy bubba.

    • States which employ the death penalty have MORE crime than those which do not.  17 innocent people have been released from death-roound the nation over the last ten years. ne has not has a death penalty in almost 150 years, and also has one of the lowest crime rates in the Nation.

      What exactly would you like to change?

       

      • Once again statements like the above without all the variables are misleading at best. Please list the populations of the same states where the death penalty and crime rates exceed ours. See any correlation? The only downside to the death  penalty is the costs. 

        • Ben Hutchins

          Executing someone in error is neither correctable nor acceptable.  Until the administration of capital punishment can be handled with absolutely zero possibility of such a failure – which is impossible – I cannot, in good conscience, support it, no matter how open-and-shut a specific case appears to be.

        • Statistics when done correctly are number netural.  The study to which I refer is by 100,000 population, but in answer to your question, Wyoming has half Maine’s population, but double the crime rate.  Another interesting fact regarding the death penalty is that (again statistically) it is used more often when minorities commit crimes against whites, than the reverse.

    When the dust settles on this (overall) sordid mess the BDN can perform a real service for Maine citizens: They can examine each criminal case that these two low-lifes were involved in here in Maine.  Name the prosecutors, judges  and attorneys that were involved and how Daluz and Sexton  got the lenient sentences that they did for serious crimes like stabbing other people.  Also, do the same for everyone involved in cutting their jail time short and letting them back on the street!

    The people responsible should be held accountable!  They bear significant responsibility for the deaths of three people.  The fact that the three people were not saints is immaterial.  I will bet that most of the prosecutors, judges, attorney generals and assistant attorney generals that were involved in their cases are ELECTED OFFICIALS!

    BDN get their names and the facts out before the next election.  Then we (the voters) can start the process of reversing the “catch and release” attitude that is so prevalent in our state!

    • As much as other people have liked this – and as much as I would like to “like” this as well.  I know this is not going to be popular, but it begs to be stated, for those of us that are Christians, looking at the parable of the Vineyard Workers found in Matthew 20:1-16:

      “God’s kingdom is like an estate manager who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard. They agreed on a wage of a dollar a day, and went to work.  Later, about nine o’clock, the manager saw some other men hanging around the town square unemployed. He told them to go to work in his vineyard and he would pay them a fair wage. They went.  He did the same thing at noon, and again at three o’clock. At five o’clock he went back and found still others standing around. He said, ‘Why are you standing around all day doing nothing?’  They said, ‘Because no one hired us.’  He told them to go to work in his vineyard.  When the day’s work was over, the owner of the vineyard instructed his foreman, ‘Call the workers in and pay them their wages. Start with the last hired and go on to the first.’  Those hired at five o’clock came up and were each given a dollar. When those who were hired first saw that, they assumed they would get far more. But they got the same, each of them one dollar. Taking the dollar, they groused angrily to the manager, ‘These last workers put in only one easy hour, and you just made them equal to us, who slaved all day under a scorching sun.’  He replied to the one speaking for the rest, ‘Friend, I haven’t been unfair. We agreed on the wage of a dollar, didn’t we? So take it and go. I decided to give to the one who came last the same as you. Can’t I do what I want with my own money? Are you going to get stingy because I am generous?’  Here it is again, the Great Reversal: many of the first ending up last, and the last first.”

      As a Christian, it is believed that if he truly repents later on in his life and is honest in his repentance that he too will be honored and accepted into Heaven.  Now, there are plenty of people that will say that he (among many other criminals) do not “deserve” to get into Heaven, but really that is not up to you (or I) to say.  With that all being said… I definitely feel bad for the families that have been affected by this tragedy and I hope and pray that they find some peace by these men being brought to justice; and they can close this chapter of their lives and move on, find forgiveness and closure.

    And for everyone who agreed with the police in not releasing the names or the indictment info, yes, you WERE in danger, because these guys were walking the streets, with no one looking for them. Sexton was caught because someone from the PUBLIC knew he was wanted. Daluza turned himself in because someone in law enforcement down in Mass with a actual brain let it be known he had been indicted.

    jud, this state is the whitest state in the country. 98% or something. how come this state does not have the best economy in the country? How come this state has so much welfare,no jobs,lots of drugs,alcoholics. How come,every day ,there is 1 or 2 new sex offender stories in the newspapers?  How come this state does not have the best schools ,the highest sats scores, the best, this and that. How come this state is not the wealthiest state in the country? How come with this all white state, we are not all living in $1 million dollar homes,drives $70000 cars?
    If whites are so great without blacks around, this state should be utopia . white people are responsible for the condition this state is in

  • I think its about time for the Maine Judicial system to grow up, grow a set, and start attacking this problem at the core instead of waiting for the aftermath. We all know why this happened, question is why isn’t more being done to take DRUG DEALERS off our streets and out of our neighborhoods and State??? No need for these yougsters to die, NO NEED AT ALL!!! Where is the Justice??? They seem to more cowardly than the criminals they protect…

    Tell the daughter the truth she will find out sooner then later and will resent not being told by those closest to her.

    • I would agree with you – but keep in mind that this is a little girl we are talking about – not even school-aged yet.  For now, all she needs to know is that her Daddy is not here any more.  As she gets older, that is the time to talk about “making good and bad choices”; and when she gets even older, give her the full story.

    breaking news update on Nick Sexton:

    Oct 05, 2012 @ 02:04 AM
    BROCKTON — Man’s capture shakes Brockton neighborhood The armored vehicle arrived about 4 a.m. Thursday, rumbling into position alongside several police cruisers as they began encircling a North Montello Street home. Their target – a fugitive wanted in connection with a triple murder in Maine. Their mission – capture the suspect without having to unleash their immense firepower in this congested neighborhood. Within seconds, an army of federal, state and local authorities – some wearing camouflage and others carrying high-powered rifles – surrounded the beige, multi-family house at 771 North Montello St……..

    If these two are guilty and receive less than a death sentence, I will no longer have faith or put trust in our judicial system that is filled with too many sympathetic bleeding hearts.   There are far too many “known” rapist, murderers, child molesters and drug dealers who have been arrested and set free, more than once because of a weak and ineffective Judicial system.    There is far more effort by the police and the courts to collect revenue by arresting someone for not wearing there seat belt, talking on a cell phone or doing 8 miles an hour over the speed limit than there is to catch and punish these violent offenders that prey on decent people.  If the criminal justice system is not reconstructed to work for the decent honest people, it is time for the people and victims to become the system and deal with the criminals themselves!   I believe in the law and justice but not when it is altered and designed to favor criminals rights!  There is no place for plea bargaining when it comes to child molesters, rapist, cold blooded murderers and drug dealers in a system designed to work!

       You won’t have faith in our judicial system because we do not have death sentences in Maine.

    These are the kind of people that have no conscience and can’t be reasoned with. They will get up everyday, kill somebody and go have chicken and beer afterwards like nothing happened.  They may seem perfectly normal to everyone but that’s how they are. They are so good at masking any emotions and will sadly use it to brainwash their supporters.

  • “An analysis of [the woman’s] cellular phone activity led BPD detectives to Sexton at a hotel in Danvers, Mass.,” the affidavit states. “BPD detectives attempted to interview Sexton in Danvers on Aug. 14, 2012, but he told them that he would not speak with them.” – That should have been the first clue that this guy was some how involved and was not about ready to “go peacefully”.  Glad they caught him – funny how he is fighting coming back to Maine, again another indication to me that he is guilty as all get out.  But, again that is my personal opinion… I know, I know, innocent until proven guilty… yada, yada, yada…

     “On Feb. 23 of this year he pleaded guilty to felony illegal importation of drugs and was sentenced to 90 days in jail and a $400 fine.He got out of jail about six weeks before the triple homicide.”

    This is what is wrong…TIME DOES NOT FIT CRIME.!
    Felony charge and gets the same punishment as if I get caught at .08 after a six beers at happy hour.
    Judges in Maine showsome spine.

    to all the people who post the negative comments or make this into a b&*%^ fest, cut the crap….. it doesnt matter if the bpd gave out names if they knew them or not. it doesnt matter if there were drugs or money involved, and it doesnt matter how long it took police officials to capture these fugitives. what matters is they are caught now and where they belong. what matters is theres a little girl who ,doesnt have a daddy,what matters is theres parents,or brothers,sisters,aunts,uncles,grandparents and even friends that lost 3 people in that car the night these 2 gentlemen decided to take there lives like it was an ok thing to do. what does matter is that these 3 victims families can be at peace now knowing that these men are caught and behind bars and hopefully get the punishment that is well deserved. some say an eye for an eye,unfortunately we don’t have that option in maine,but hopefully the jury and judge make an example out of these men and show that justice will be served.and what matters is that hopefully these men wont ever have another chance to hurt anyone else or there family or friends again. and what matters is that us as humans and neighbors to the victims here in bangor be a little more supportive of the family members that lost there loved ones. theres no need to dispute what police did right or wrong or what led these men to do this awful crime,cause nothings going to bring these 3 people back.what police did was there job,and they obviously did it well no matter the time straints. they got the guys who did it. everyone should be thankful they are off the streets and the guys arent going to have the opportunity to do harm unto your family or friends,and they cant run anymore from it. hopefully the judge will deny bail.

    • i agree with you 100 percent. all these irrelivant so called facts and comments that are posted on here is just rediculous.whats important here is that these guys are in jail and are hopefully going to get the punishment they deserve for taking these 3 peoples lives that didnt deserve to get taken. it doesnt matter if it was over drugs or money. it doesnt matter if these 3 people were drug addicts and they got caught up with the wrong people. it doesnt make them deserve to be shot to death then burned. everyone has been young at some point and everyone makes life mistakes. and these 2 men that did the crime are going to pay for there mistake like they deserve to.so everything aside whats important like u said is that the bangor police department caught these guys.doesnt matter how long it took them. what matters is they got them and they are off the streets,and justice will be served :)

    maybe if our criminal justice system grew some testicles and actually incarcerated people based on the severity of their crimes AND the propensity to commit more crime as indicated by their records these guys may have still been behind bars this summer.
