A cooperative effort by the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section, the State Police Detective Unit for Plymouth County, the United States Marshals Service, and Brockton Police has led to the capture of a homicide suspect on the MSP’s Most Wanted list.
US Marshals assigned to the Dominican Republic on Oct. 21 apprehended WITCHAEL NORMIL, 30, wanted for a December 2019 shooting homicide in Brockton. The joint Massachusetts State Police-Brockton Police-USMS team, after an extensive investigation, recently determined that NORMIL was likely in the Dominican Republic and helped direct Marshals there to his location.
The MSP Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section added NORMIL to its Most Wanted list in July. NORMIL is the subject of an arrest warrant charging him with the Dec. 13, 2019 murder of Marshawn A. Potts, 26, of Brockton. On that date, Brockton Police responded to Shaw Road for a reported shooting discovered Potts lying in a driveway with fatal wounds. The resulting investigation identified NORMIL as the alleged shooter.
The day after his capture, NORMIL was deported to New York, where he was arraigned as a fugitive from justice. The suspect waived his opposition to rendition to Massachusetts, and yesterday State Police detectives assigned to the Plymouth District Attorney’s Office transported him back to Brockton, where he is expected to arraigned in District Court today.
