COMPLAINT
The Complainant, being duly sworn, makes complaint to the above-named Court and states that there is probable cause to believe that the Defendant committed the following offense(s). The complainant states that the following facts establish PROBABLE CAUSE:

Complainant, Detective Chuck Ryan, of the Brooklyn Park Police Department, has investigated the facts and circumstances of this offense and believes the following establishes probable cause: That on April 9, 2012, at approximately 6:28 a.m., officers were dispatched to a residence located at 8117 College Park Drive in Brooklyn Park, Hennepin County, Minnesota, to investigate a possible burglary in progress. En route, officers were advised by dispatch that a citizen (hereafter Witness #1) was on scene. Witness #1 reported the residence is owned by a known adult female (hereafter Victim #1) who runs a daycare out of the residence. Witness #1 brought her child to the residence at approximately 6:15 a.m. After dropping off her child, Witness #1 reported seeing a black male on a bicycle about to turn into the driveway. The black male hesitated and continued past when he saw Witness #1 at the residence. The black male continued riding down the street, making two circles in the roadway. Witness #1 reported she drove away from the residence and passed the black male. Witness #1 reported that after she passed the black male, he turned around and rode back towards the residence. Witness #1 reported she called Victim #1 on the telephone to alert her to the situation and, while speaking with Victim #1, heard a struggle and Victim #1 say, “Stop.” Witness #1 drove back to the residence and observed the bicycle lying in the driveway. Witness #1 then observed the black male exit the residence and appear to put an object in his jacket. The black male then got back on the bicycle and rode away. Witness #1 followed the black male down the street until the black male drove off the road, over a berm, and out of sight. Witness #1 reported the black male rode in the direction of a nearby Walmart. Witness #1 went back to Victim #1’s residence, walked inside, and attempted to locate Victim #1 and her child. Witness #1 reported she walked into a bedroom and observed Victim #1 leaning over a bed where Victim #1’s elderly parents were present (hereafter Victim #2 and Victim #3). All three victims were deceased.

EDDIE MATTHEW MOSLEY CCN 12018926

Officers and medical personnel arrived on scene and confirmed all three victims were deceased. Victim #1 was found partially standing and leaning over the bed, clutching onto her elderly father (Victim #2). The victim’s elderly mother (Victim #3) was lying on the bed next to Victim #2. All three victims had multiple gunshot wounds to their heads and blood soaked the bedding, the walls and splattered onto the ceiling. Officers searched the bedroom and found multiple discharged casings, indicative of a semi-automatic handgun being used. The victims were transported to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office where autopsies were performed. Victim #1 was found to have one gunshot wound to the crown of her head. The medical examiner determined this was a contact wound (i.e., the muzzle of the firearm was touching Victim #1’s head at the time the weapon was fired). Victim #1 was found to have a second contact gunshot wound to the back of her skull. Victim #2 was found to have one contact gunshot wound to the front of his face, just below the right nostril and a second contact gunshot wound to the front of his face in the area of his left facial cheek. Victim #3 was found to have one contact gunshot wound to the right temple with the bullet exiting out her left temple. Victim #3 was found to have a second gunshot wound to her face, just below her right nostril, with the bullet exiting out the back of her skull. For all three victims, the medical examiner determined the cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds and the manner of death was ruled a homicide. Officers located and spoke with several witnesses. One witness reported that at approximately 6:00 a.m., he observed a black male remove a bicycle from a black Dodge Durango near the area of Greenhaven Drive and Mount Curve Boulevard. This witness reported the black male then rode the bicycle in the direction of the Walmart. This witness also observed a second party in the Dodge Durango who drove the vehicle after the black male departed with the bicycle. Another witness reported that at approximately 6:33 a.m., he observed a black male on a bicycle across from the Walmart on Greenhaven Drive near County Road 81. Officers obtained and viewed video surveillance from Walmart. This surveillance video shows a bicyclist at approximately 6:00 a.m. riding towards the berm near Victim #1’s residence. This surveillance also captures the bicyclist back in the Walmart parking lot at 6:31 a.m. Surveillance video also shows the black Dodge Durango located on County Road 81 making movements towards the bicyclist. Officers spoke with a known adult female, hereafter Witness #2, who reported she is a relative of Victim #1. Witness #2 reported she has a juvenile daughter who is dropped off at Victim #1’s residence in the morning prior to school. Witness #2 reported that in October 2011, her juvenile daughter was sexually assaulted by EDDIE MATTHEW MOSLEY, hereafter defendant. Witness #2 reported the defendant is her half-brother. Witness #2 reported that during April 4-6, 2012, she received a number of telephone calls and text messages from the defendant. The defendant indicated he received a criminal complaint and summons in the mail charging him with criminal sexual conduct in the first degree for the incident involving Witness #2’s juvenile daughter. The defendant informed Witness #2 that she needed to “make it go away.” Witness #2 refused. Witness #2 reported the defendant was aware that her juvenile daughter was dropped off at Victim #1’s residence every morning before school and that the defendant had knowledge of the location of Victim #1’s residence. However, Witness #2 reported the defendant was not aware that her juvenile daughter recently stopped being dropped off at that residence in the morning. Witness #2 reported the defendant resides in St. Louis, Missouri. Officers confirmed the defendant resides in St. Louis, Missouri and is the registered owner of a black Dodge Durango.

Officers obtained cell phone tower information for towers in the area of the murders and located a cell phone number of interest. Officers learned this number was registered to a cell phone whose historical data showed the cell phone traveled from St. Louis, Missouri on April 8, 2012, to Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, and then back to St. Louis, Missouri on April 9, 2012. Officers traced this cell phone to a residence in St. Louis, Missouri. Officers made contact with the individual in possession of the cell phone, hereafter Witness #3. Witness #3 reported she purchased the cell phone on March 1, 2012, and provided it to her boyfriend, hereafter Witness #4. Witness #3 reported her boyfriend knows the defendant and was recently with him. Officers located and spoke with Witness #4. Witness #4 reported that on April 7, 2012, the defendant asked Witness #4 to accompany him on a trip. Witness #4 agreed. On April 8, 2012, the defendant picked up Witness #4. The defendant was driving his black Dodge Durango and Witness #4 observed a bicycle in the back of the vehicle. Witness #4 was carrying Witness #3’s cell phone at the time. Along the way to Minnesota, the defendant made Witness #4 pump gas and pay with cash provided by the defendant. Witness #4 reported the defendant stopped in Minnesota, exited the vehicle, and removed the bicycle. The defendant informed Witness #4 to buy a cup of coffee and cigarettes come back to their present location. Witness #4 drove the defendant’s vehicle to a nearby convenience store and purchased coffee and cigarettes. Officers obtained surveillance video from a convenience store that is located near the above-described Walmart. The convenience store video depicts a black male purchasing coffee and cigarettes. A still photo of this individual was obtained and both Witness #3 and Witness #4 identified the person in the photograph as Witness #4. Witness #4 reported that after making this purchase, he drove the defendant’s Dodge Durango back to the area where he was instructed to meet the defendant. Witness #4 reported he saw the defendant riding the bicycle back to the area and acknowledged making a series of driving maneuvers to meet back up with the defendant. Witness #4 reported the defendant put the bicycle back into the vehicle and got into the driver’s seat. Witness #4 reported the defendant’s face was covered in blood. The defendant then stated, “I fucked up.” Witness #4 observed the defendant take a handgun from his waistband and put it on the center console. The defendant then began driving back to Missouri. Witness #4 reported the defendant removed his sweatshirt, wiped off his face, and put the sweatshirt in the back seat. Along the way back, the defendant again made Witness #4 pump gas and pay with cash. At present, the defendant is in custody on an unrelated matter. As such, your complainant hereby requests this complaint issue by warrant rather than by summons.
