‘Closed’ Fatal Robbery Case Reopened

BALTIMORE (WJZ)–A Baltimore County man shoots and kills an armed intruder. For nearly a year it appeared to be a closed case. But now a shocking revelation: police say the victim’s son set up the whole plot against his father.

Vic Carter reports.

At 6 a.m. on March 28 of last year, William Bozeman, 68, woke up to see another man—29-year-old Marvin Cook—standing over his bed, pointing a gun at him, demanding money.

The two struggled. Bozeman grabbed his own gun and shot Cook, killing him. From the very beginning, investigators suspected Bozeman was not a random victim, but a target.

For 11 months, detectives tried to pinpoint a link between the victim and the suspect. Then last week, investigators say they found their link—the victim’s own son.

The FBI Fugitive Task Force arrested William Bozeman Jr. in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He’s accused of setting up the robbery at his father’s home. But right now Baltimore County Police are not able to say how investigators made the connection.

William Bozman Jr. faces a number of charges, including conspiracy to commit armed robbery and assault. He is being held without bail in Florida and will likely be extradited to Maryland.

    This story smelled like week old fish from the beginning. Congratulations to whoever kept this story alive. I think the kid had drug & or gambling problems & was collecting on insurance $$. Oldest & most stupid crime in history.
