    Ehh, no. He made the original arrest. You can hate the man, but get the facts straight.

    From a 6ABC interview:

    “There was a reason I didn't carry a gun, number one, I was never the greatest shot in the world," Chitwood said.

    Eventually he was ordered to carry a gun and was promoted to the homicide unit.

    That's where he took over the cold case of Holly Maddux. She disappeared in the late 1970s. Ira Einhorn, a cult-like figure, was long suspected in her disappearance.

    "So I took the investigation home and I read it and said, 'My god! This guy killed her,'" Chitwood said.

    Armed with a 37-page search warrant, Chitwood and his team went to Einhorn's house where they focused on a closet and a steamer trunk.

    "I come to the steamer trunk and I could smell like a decayed body," Chitwood said.

    As Einhorn looked on, Chitwood began to dig through the trunk.

    "And then I went up there, there was her hand sticking out. I turned to him and said, 'Looks like we found Holly.' And he said, 'You found what you found' and he turned around and walked away," Chitwood said.”

    Correct. It is not like in the movies.

    Apparently he was carrying a weapon when he was in homicide though.

    Unless it is Ira Einhorn. Then maybe air fresheners would be more important than bullets.

    * Ira was one of his noteworthy arrests.
    Einhorn is Finkle! Finkle is Einhorn!
    I only now get the joke after 20ish years. "Einhorn means Unicorn in German" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ira_Einhorn
