Man arrested in connection to wife's 1987 death in Guam

INDIANAPOLIS - Federal authorities arrested a veteran in Indianapolis on Thursday in connection with his wife's death 27 years ago.

Gary Scagg’s wife, Tracey, was killed in Guam back in 1987. Officials said the case went cold when police couldn’t find any leads.

New information was recently uncovered that revived the case, authorities said.

Scaggs was indicted on a single count of murder April 11. He was arrested at an apartment complex on the city’s northeast side Thursday.

Authorities said they hope to extradite Scaggs to Guam to face charges.
