BATON ROUGE – The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office identified the suspect in the murder of EBRSO Deputy Shawn Anderson as a man wanted for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl.
Anderson had questioned Brandon Wiley, 30, for an alleged rape which occurred March 12, according to reports. Wiley allegedly gave the girl a tattoo and then raped her, according to a probably cause report.
EBRSO booked Anderson remotely with one charge of first-degree rape, resisting an officer and body piercing of minors.
Wiley, who remains in critical condition at an area hospital, has not yet been charged in Anderson’s death.
The shooting remains under investigation by the Louisiana State Police.
Wiley has a criminal history which includes a 2004 arrest for attempted first-degree murder, a charge which was reduced through a guilty plea for aggravated battery in 2005. He served 13 months in jail.
Wiley was also arrested on a traffic stop in December 2009 for possession of a stolen gun. He was booked with possession of a stolen firm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, but was never prosecuted.
He was arrested less than two months later for a misdemeanor charge of unlawful tattooing of a minor. He pleaded guilty and served four months in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
Wiley was arrested in March 2010 on a charge of indecent behavior with a juvenile, in relation to an incident with a 10-year-old girl. He pleaded guilty to inciting a felony, which led to a two-year jail sentence.
