The former sheriff’s detective who allegedly killed his wife, teen daughter and her high school football star boyfriend was reportedly arrested Monday morning.
Stephen Broderick, 41, was collared near Manor, a city about 12 miles northeast of Austin, after cops received a 911 call about a man walking along US Highway 290, KVUE’s Tony Plohetski reported in a tweet.
The suspect was arrested without incident, he added.
Broderick is suspected of killing his wife, Amanda Broderick, teen daughter, Alyssa, and Willie Simmons III, a standout linebacker who had signed with the University of North Texas, according to reports.
He retired from the Travis County Sheriff’s Office last year after being charged and jailed for allegedly molesting a 16-year-old, the Austin American-Statesman reported.
