MILWAUKEE (AP) — The man who led police to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer 20 years ago is due back in court on a charge stemming from the death of a man who was thrown off a bridge into the Milwaukee River.

Fifty-two-year-old Tracy Edwards has pleaded not guilty to first-degree recklessly endangering safety. Edwards and 44-year-old Timothy Carr were charged in connection with the drowning of 43-year-old Johnny Jordan on July 26. Carr pleaded guilty earlier this month and is due to be sentenced Jan. 20.

Edwards is scheduled to appear in Milwaukee County Circuit on Friday for a final pre-trial hearing. His trial is set for Jan. 17.

Edwards was in the headlines in 1991 when he escaped from Dahmer’s apartment and led police to him.

    one would imagine he became truly messed up in his head 20 years ago _ nothing he does or does not do surprises me

    @ Pat, if you read the story about this guy, or any of the victims for that matter, you’ll see that while Dhamer was an opportunist and a predator, his victims were all less than stellar members of society. This guy was not a choir boy that became corrupted by the incident with GD. If anything he clearly did not learn from what happened and now he is the prime suspect in a murder. Now that, is not surprising.
