    Wanted Man Taken Into Custody in Massachusetts
    South Windsor Police Department

    A former South Windsor man who had eluded police since late July has been taken into custody in Massachusetts.

    Barry Simpson, 49, was wanted in South Windsor in connection with a domestic violence incident. Police said Simpson made suicidal and homicidal threats and may have been brandishing a hunting knife.

    South Windsor police began searching for him July 24. Simpson, a former South Windsor resident, was wanted for criminal violation of a restraining order.

    Police sent out an alert Monday evening but canceled it shortly thereafter, saying Simpson had been taken into custody in Chicopee, Massachusetts, where he currently lives.
