Joseph Smith Alabama Murder Suspect

The man accused of abducting a South Florida girl that was caught on tape, is now being listed as a suspect in the murder of an Alabama girl.

37-year old Joseph Smith has been arrested for the murder of 11-year Carlie Brucia in Sarasota, Florida. Her abduction was caught on a car wash's surveillance camera.

Now, he's listed as a suspect in a similar murder of 11-year-old Shannon Paulk in Prattville, which is right outside of Montgomery.

Shannon paulk was kidnapped and murdered back in 2001 in a similar fashion as Brucia. Alabama authorities re-released a police mug shot that seems eerily similar to Joseph Smith's profile.

A murder task force has looked at over 100 suspects over the years for any possible connection to Faulk's abduction and murder.
