Terry Zwicker says he's not surprised Young is back in police custody
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Three weeks after being acquitted of killing his stepbrother, Josh Young is locked up again. Police found Young on foot and took him into custody for fleeing and evading police Wednesday night. They were looking for him after his foster parents filed a missing person's report on Friday.
Last month Young was found not guilty of murdering his stepbrother, 14 year old Trey Zwicker. Zwicker's father, Terry Zwicker, says simply he's not surprised.
"Where's the sweet little kid in a sweater vest and a tie?" asked Zwicker.
From the day his son was found murdered in a field behind Liberty High School on Indian Trail, Zwicker said he's always believed Young was involved.
"I know he was there that night," said Zwicker. "I know he did something to my son that night. I know he got away with it and now we get to see what he is going to do with it."
Young's foster mother, Susan Stoneburner, filed a missing person's report with Louisville Metro Police after Young never came home late Friday night. Under Kentucky state law, foster parents are mandated to report all missing foster children to police.
WAVE 3 News actually got a hold of Young on his cell phone Wednesday afternoon. He told us he was doing fine, but didn't plan on going back to his foster family.
This news comes one day after Trey would have turned 17.
"The day after Trey's birthday, all this goes on and you know I thought it was all over for me," said Zwicker.
Young was arrested by the LMPD Viper unit at E. Kentucky Street and Schiller Avenue in the Germantown neighborhood around 6 p.m. Wednesday after he attempted to run away from officers.
"I have no concerns whatsoever about what he is doing," said Zwicker. "I have concerns about what he could do to somebody else. I have knowledge that he has tried to contact some of the witnesses."
Zwicker said he's glad Young's back in police custody and believes Trey will get justice one way or another.
"Everybody now is getting to see the true little boy that walked away from murder," said Zwicker.
Young's foster parents did not return our call for comment.
