The Eureka Police Department arrested Albert Durant Kress Sr. today on suspicion of murdering Raymond Prudhomme, who was found dead inside a Eureka apartment last month.

EPD is releasing little information on the case but announced in a press release this afternoon that it had taken Kress, 48, of Eureka, into custody. It stated that he and Prudhomme "were known to each other." The release also notes that detectives offered their thanks to friends, family and acquaintances of Prudhomme for providing timely information in the case.

Prudhomme was found dead Feb. 22 at about 1:30 p.m. and a subsequent autopsy determined his death was a homicide. EPD has released no further details about him, his manner of death or the circumstances under which his body was discovered.
