A police spokesperson noted that the casino player, who preferred to remain anonymous, warned the casino staff. He told casino
officials that he saw two murderers in the casino but he could not remember the names of the suspects. The man stated that he recognized both suspects from the TV show ‘America’s Most Wanted’.
State police officers told casino staff to keep an eye on both suspects. In the meanwhile, detectives looked for pictures of the suspects and details about their identities. They checked the America’s Most Wanted site after which the detectives learned that the mother and son were suspects in the murder of Bert English. State police officers detained both suspects at Resorts Atlantic City.
It remains unclear if the Costellos hired an attorney. America’s Most Wanted revealed that Las Vegas police found English in the bedroom of the family’s residence. Michelle Costello informed 911 about her husband’s unconsciousness. English and Costello divorced a couple of years ago, but decided to marry again last summer.
