Cold Case Detectives have arrested a 46-year old man and charged him with the death of a 39-year old Tucson man in 2001. Reginald Reed was located in Florida and has been extradited to Pima County to face charges of 1st degree murder, attempted 1st degree murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and weapons misconduct/prohibited possession in connection with the murder of Lewis Washington.

Reed was arrested the following day but was released when the surviving witness left the area and could not be located. Cold Case detectives located that man in June of 2008 and he agreed to cooperate, leading to Reed's arrest.
