An Amber Alert for a Louisville teen and his father ended hundreds of miles away with both in custody and a a story with a lot of twists and turns.
Joshua Gouker, Sr. and his 15-year-old son, Joshua Young, were located in Birmingham, Alabama. Police say the 15-year-old is at a juvenile detention center there, but did not say why.
Gouker was arrested on an outstanding gun charge. He's the husband of the mother of Trey Zwicker, a 14-year-old who was was found murdered near a Louisville school last month. Zwicker's mother claims Gouker is a suspect in that case.
"He was running for his life, he knows that he's guilty," said Ross Phelps, who said that he knows Gouker. "He's taken his son with him and trying to turn him into a little gang banger like he grew up."
Joshua Young's mom also had an emergency protective order out against Gouker back in 2000. Court papers show that back then he threatened that she'd never see her son again.
