May 8, 2013--Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk, Lawnside Public Safety Director John Cunningham and Lindenwold Police Chief Thomas Brennan reported arrests of suspects this week in two unsolved Camden County homicides.
The first to be caught was Nestor Torres, M/30, of the 2800 block of Constitution Road in Camden, on a Murder and Kidnapping warrant for the February 23, 2013 shooting death of Stephon Cushion, M/27, of Camden. Torres is accused of shooting Cushion multiple times in the bedroom of a home on the 400 block of Company Street in Lawnside. A warrant had been issued for Torres’ arrest in February. Information received by the Sheriff’s Department in Osceola County, Florida, led to the suspect being identified and staying with a friend in Kissimmee, Fla. Osceola County officials took Torres into custody Monday and he is awaiting extradition to New Jersey.
The second arrest was made Tuesday night. Turon Frisbey, M/27, of Camden, was arrested at 6th and Division Streets in Camden by officials from the prosecutor’s office, the Camden County Sheriff’s Department and the Camden County Police Department. Thte U.S. Marshals new York/New Jersey Fugitive Task Force was also instrumental in locating Frisbey.
Frisbey is charged with Murder in connection with the shooting of Sal Bowman, M/32, of Lindenwold, at the Arborwood Apartments in Lindenwold on December 8, 2012. It is alleged Bowman and Frisbey had been in a fight at a bar in Clementon shortly before the shooting. Police broke up the fight, but the argument apparently continued at the Arborwood Apartments. Frisbey is accused of shooting Bowman there multiple times. Witnesses told investigators Bowman was walking away from Frisbey when he was shot. Frisbey was ordered held on $1 million bail at a hearing Wednesday.
