Fugitive Kansas Triple-Murder Suspect Could Be Hiding In Oklahoma
OKLAHOMA CITY - Kansas law enforcement officials are on high-alert for a triple-murder suspect, who they say may be hiding out in Oklahoma.
According to CBS affiliate KWCH, an arrest warrant was issued for 35-year-old Jereme Nelson in connection to the deaths of three people in Harvey County, Kansas. A warrant was also issued for 31-year-old Myrta Rangel, who is believed to be traveling with Nelson. A photo of Rangel was not immediately available.
The bodies of 33-year-old Travis Street, 37-year-old Angela Graevs and the couple's Newton friend, 52-year-old Richard Prouty were found Sunday outside a home in a rural area near Moundridge. The victims had been shot. Harvey County Prosecuting Attorney David Yoder says the motive for the killings appears to be drug-related.
The Harvey County Sheriff told KWCH that Nelson was last known to be somewhere in Oklahoma, but so far no alerts have been put out in the state.
Officers warn that Nelson should be considered armed and dangerous. He could be driving either a cream-colored Lincoln MKZ with Kansas plate, 670-HHJ or a cream-colored Escalade with Texas plate SKZ-229.
If you have information about his whereabouts call 911 immediately.
