U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests Homicide Suspects

Harrisburg, PA – Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrest of Cordaryl Burns and Larry Burns - both charged with two homicides in Cumberland County.

On February 23, 2022, the Pennsylvania State Police was called to a house fire in the 100 block of Neil Road, Shippensburg, Cumberland County after two apparent homicide victims were discovered in the home. Troopers investigated and – on March 16, 2022 – obtained arrest warrants charging Cordaryl and Larry Burns with homicide and lesser included offenses. Troopers also learned that both men fled Pennsylvania and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force was asked to apprehend him.

This morning at about 8 a.m., members of the fugitive task force arrested Cordaryl Burns in the 13000 block of Forrer Street, Detroit, Michigan. He was turned over to the Detroit Police Department pending extradition to Pennsylvania.

Also, this morning at about 8 a.m., members of the fugitive task force arrested Larry Burns in the 3000 block of North Roberts Avenue, Lumberton, North Carolina. He was turned over to the Lumberton County Sheriff’s Office pending extradition to Pennsylvania.

United States Marshal Pane stated, “It’s the Marshals Services’ duty to ensure that those charged with violent crimes have their day in court. It is my sincere hope that members of the affected communities will find some measure of comfort knowing this suspect will face justice.”
