City of Burlington police said they arrested a suspect in a northern Wisconsin homicide near Aurora Medical Center Burlington, 252 McHenry St., on Wednesday evening after acting on a tip from other law enforcement agencies through the Wisconsin Crime Alert Network.

Local officers were notified at 7:14 p.m. Wednesday that murder suspect Derek Goplin, 38, had been dropped off near the hospital and clinic, according to a news release issued by the department. Police were able to find Goplin a short time later, at which point he was arrested and taken to the Racine County Jail in Racine.

Goplin has been the subject of a statewide manhunt since Monday when he was charged in Langlade County Circuit Court with homicide in connection with the stabbing death of his mother, Susan Reese, 63, of Antigo.

According to multiple reports, Goplin had been seen in the Waukesha area Monday. WISN 12 television reported that he was staying at the Ingleside Hotel in Pewaukee with a child believed to be his son before fleeing and leaving the boy behind. Authorities found the boy wondering the halls of the hotel, according to WISN.

Antigo police had asked for the public’s help in locating Goplin, but cautioned them to call 911 because he may have been carrying a knife and was known to carry guns.
