Wisconsin Strangler Captured in Will County, Jailed in Joliet

A man convicted of strangulation and suffocation in Wisconsin was captured in Will County earlier this week.

A Chicago man convicted of strangling someone in Wisconsin was captured in Will County.

Alan Clark, 32, was arrested by sheriff's deputies and booked into the county jail Friday.

Clark, formerly of Rockford, was living at a shelter in Chicago at the time of his arrest, according to jail records.

Clark appeared in court Monday and waived his right to an extradition hearing. He will remain in the South Chicago Street jail until the authorities in Wisconsin send someone to pick him up.

Clark was wanted for allegedly violating his probation, according to court papers.

Clark was convicted in February 2010 of strangulation and suffocation. He was also found guilty of intimidating a victim.

Clark was arrested on the charges in October 2009. Calls to the Dane County, Wis., District Attorney's Office about what Clark supposedly did to catch the strangulation charge went unreturned Wednesday.

Clark, who Wisconsin officials say uses as many as a dozen aliases ranging from "Charles E. Marks" to "Kurt Courtrail," was sentenced to six months in jail but was credited with already having served the time.

Three years earlier in the same Wisconsin jurisdiction, Clark was charged with fourth degree sexual assault. The case was dropped and Clark was instead convicted on charges of battery and criminal trespass to a dwelling.
