Upon further investigation, detectives from the Delaware State Police Homicide Unit identified Michael Klein as the suspect.
According to the arrest warrant obtained by the Delaware News Journal, on June 4, a few days before Fetrow’s body was found, Klein told an acquaintance he "killed a man in the Longneck area near a golf course" and "stabbed the victim multiple times before placing him under a tree."
The acquaintance reportedly told authorities that Klein went by the nickname "Skinhead M. Klein" and that he had a "large pocket knife" and blood on his shorts.
On June 16, a warrant was obtained against Klein, charging him with first-degree murder and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, according to police. Klein was reportedly already in jail on an unrelated offense when the warrant was obtained.
During an interview, Klein initially told police he witnessed two Black people stab Fetrow as he hid in the bushes, the Delaware News Journal reports. However, court documents obtained by the Delaware News Journal allege Fetrow’s DNA was discovered on Klein’s shoes.
Klein remains held in the Sussex Correctional Institution on $1,060,000 bond.
