Florida Man Arrested in Connection with Easton Murder
A Florida man has been arrested in South Carolina in connection to a murder in Bristol County.
The District Attorney’s Office says 47-year-old Michael Arthur Noguera of Lehigh Acres, Florida was arrested in Conway, South Carolina over the weekend in connection to the shooting death of Daniel Smith in Easton, Massachusetts, last week. Noguera was found in a trailer Saturday afternoon. He’s charged with accessory to murder after the fact, armed robbery, and larceny over $250.
The charges are connected to Smith’s death. Smith was also a Florida man who had previously lived in Easton. Smith had been found shot multiple times in a wooded area in Easton on Tuesday. He was med-flighted to Brigham & Women’s Hospital where he died Friday night.
Noguera is also being charged in South Carolina as being a fugitive from justice, and will appear in court Monday morning before the extradition process to Massachusetts begins.
Investigators continue to gather more information on the murder, and are asking the public’s help. If anyone has seen or sees a red 2016 Mazda 3 sedan with Florida license plate number 372QQK, they are asked to immediately call Easton Police at 508-230-3322 or Massachusetts State Police Detectives at 508-717-4238.
