A Pennsylvania man accused of fatally shooting a cab driver in what police believe was a random attack allegedly confessed to the crime in his journal, authorities said.
According to the affidavit, surveillance video around the station helped investigators track Campbell’s movements after he fled the scene and went back to his home.
Officers searching Campbell’s residence took into evidence a Smith & Wesson 9-mm gun, two magazines, copper-washed ammunition cartridges, and clothing that appeared similar to what Cobb’s killer is seen wearing in surveillance video footage, the court documents state.
Officers also located a notebook in the accused gunman’s bedroom with an entry that contained the date March 29, his name, “I shot him,” and the admission he was responsible for an additional slaying, the affidavit states.
Police wrote in the affidavit that Campbell allegedly said the person in a photo of surveillance footage detectives showed him “looks like me” and admitted he wrote in the notebook about killing Cobb and a second person.
The defendant was arraigned on charges of homicide and carrying a firearm without a license, and he is being held without bail, The Patriot-News reported.
