NEEDLES A man is scheduled to appear at Victorville Superior Court next Monday, charged with murder in a case originating in Needles that had gone unsolved for more than 20 years.
Jeffrey Campbell, 49, was arrested in Orlando, Fla., and extradited to San Bernardino on March 10 in connection with the 1991 shooting death of Scott Sprague, of Santa Cruz, who had been found in his vehicle off Interstate 40 and the US Highway 95 off-ramp by a passing motorist, according to a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department news release.
A second suspect, 54-year-old Richard Williamson, was arrested April 30 in Las Vegas and is currently awaiting extradition to California in connection with the killing, according to the news release.
Last November, the sheriff’s Homicide Cold Case Team reopened the investigation into Sprague’s death and obtained arrest warrants for both men after interviewing Campbell and identifying both as suspects, according to the release.
The case is listed as one of nine high-profile cold cases on the county District Attorney’s website.
Anyone with additional information regarding this case should contact Sheriff’s Detectives Ryan Ford or Jerry Davenport at 909-387-3589.
