Yankton Man Dead, Nephew In Jail

Yankton Man Dead, Nephew In Jail

Police found 46-year-old Todd Hudson dead in his trailer home, after a woman called in, asking authorities to check on his well-being. 

A little more than an hour later, authorities sent out a picture of the victim's nephew, 28-year-old Joshua Hudson.  Authorities called him a homicide suspect.  They said he was armed and dangerous, driving a green pickup and could be headed to Sioux City.  Authorities spotted him in Sioux City, and then Joshua led them on a high-speed chase back to South Dakota.  Officers arrested him near Jefferson.

For most of the day, yellow police tape surrounded the trailer park in Yankton.

"Folks are safe.  This is an isolated incident.  I would suspect there was a rub between this uncle and nephew.  It seems like anytime it's family-related, there's something in the background," Yankton Police Chief Brian Paulsen said.

Paulsen said Joshua Hudson had just moved back to Yankton from New Mexico three months ago.

"He came up for the death of another uncle, and remained in our community; remains in our community," Paulsen said.

Right now authorities are trying to find any witnesses to give them a better idea of the events that led to Todd's death.

"We know the suspect left the crime scene, went somewhere and had a conversation and then that call came in from the female caller, so we don't know how much time transpired between the actual action and the initial call," Paulsen said.   "We've had a number of contacts with him, both state, county and city-level of law enforcement."

At this point, authorities have not released any charges Joshua Hudson faces.
