The manhunt is over over 62 year old fugitive rapist and cop killer Floyd Ray Cook. Law enforcement tracked Floyd Ray Cook to a wooded area near near Burkesville, Kentucky, with the help of a police helicopter’s thermal camera. The fugitive was then shot and killed by law enforcement as Floyd Ray Cook exchanged gun fire with the police and U.S. Marshall’s. According to accounts, no officers were injured. The 62 year old convicted rapist and robber had been on the run since Saturday afternoon, when he shot and wounded a Tennessee police officer, Ahscari Valencia during a traffic stop Saturday afternoon.
A rapist who was the target of a six-day manhunt after allegedly shooting a Tennessee cop was killed by police early Friday in what officials described as a “scary” conclusion.
