Brandon Tyrone Curtis

GREENSBORO, N.C. —  Nearly four years after Rodney Len Frazier was found fatally shot on his front porch, police have arrested the man they believe is responsible for his murder.

Brandon Tyrone Curtis, 25, was taken into at approximately 1:30 p.m. today by detectives from the Greensboro Police Violent Criminal Apprehension Team.

On Dec. 28, 2010, Frazier, then 40, struggled with two men who forced entry into his home at 923 Omaha St. The men physically assaulted Frazier and his older brother, Michael Anthony Frazier, before shooting the younger Frazier and fleeing.

Police have identified the second man believed to be involved in the incident, but are withholding his name to further the investigation. The arrest comes after extensive interviews and forensic evidence linking both men to the scene.

Curtis attempted to flee from officers while he was being admitted into the Greensboro Jail Central. Police took him back into custody before he left the premises. In addition to a first degree murder charge, he now also faces a charge of prison breach and escape from a county or municipal confinement facilities or officers. He is confined without bond.

Anyone with information is asked to call  Crime Stoppers at 336-373-1000.
