Multi-State Investigation Continues After Chase, Crash Involving Murder Suspects
OKLAHOMA CITY - Authorities continue to investigate a high-speed chase that ended in a crash in Yukon.
It all started in Oklahoma City Wednesday when OHP troopers began following a car at the request of police in Ohio.
The suspects didn't pull over, but instead sped into Yukon, at over 100 miles per hour, before crashing the vehicle.
“We were just very fortunate that no one else was involved in this especially considering the speeds that these guys were driving and everything,” Oklahoma Highway Patrol Captain Paul Timmons said.
The car belongs to a man who was stabbed to death near Cleveland Wednesday.
The two suspects inside, Joshua Hohn and Phillip Hohn-Tucker, were wanted for that homicide.
Hohn-Tucker is already in the Oklahoma County Jail.
Joshua Hohn, who already has a criminal record in Arizona, is in critical condition.
Detectives from Ohio will arrive in Oklahoma next week to investigate and examine evidence.
Oklahoma troopers are also working to gather additional evidence including an item thrown out of the car during the pursuit.
There's still a third person of interest in the case who officers are searching for.
Authorities say Gloria Louise Watton could be in Tennessee.
Meanwhile, the two male suspects will remain in Oklahoma pending extradition.
