MILWAUKEE (AP) — The man who led police to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer 20 years ago has pleaded not guilty to throwing a man off a bridge into the Milwaukee River.
The victim, 43-year-old Johnny Jordan, drowned in the river July 26.
Fifty-two-year-old Tracy Edwards and a co-defendant, 44-year-old Timothy Carr, waived their preliminary hearing Monday afternoon in Milwaukee County Circuit Court and entered the plea to first-degree recklessly endangering safety. WISN-TV reports they allegedly argued with Jordan, picked him up and threw him off a downtown Milwaukee bridge.
Edwards was in the headlines in 1991 when he escaped from Dahmer’s apartment and led police to him.
