52-year-old killed in south Madison domestic stabbing identified

Officials identified the man who was stabbed and killed on Madison’s south side Saturday morning.

The Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office said 52-year-old Gerald F. Moore, of Madison, died as a result of”homicidal sharp force injuries.”

Officers responded around 5:30 a.m. to an apartment in the 1000 block of West Badger Road after receiving an urgent 911 call from what sounded like a man.

Ronald E. Redeaux Jr., 27, of Madison, was arrested on a probation hold. Madison police expect to refer a charge of first-degree intentional homicide in Moore’s death.

Redeaux and Moore were in a domestic relationship, according to the report.

Moore’s cousin, Isaac McMillian, remembers him as someone who put family first.

“He loved to cook, and he would give the shirt off his back and he was very family oriented,” McMillian said.

McMillian said growing up he used to spend summers with Moore at their grandmother’s home in Milwaukee.

Moore’s homicide is the fifth in the city in 2017, police said.
