Update 3:30 p.m. – Oklahoma City police have captured a man wanted by Washington police in questioning of a homicide that took place on Friday.

Guthrie News Page confirmed with Oklahoma Highway Patrol, that Oklahoma City police found Jarod Thomas Bierline Lane on the I-35 Service Road at 63rd Street.

Original Story

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol believes a wanted man is either on foot in the Guthrie area or possibly hitchhiking after his vehicle was found abandoned.

Jarod Thomas Bierline Lane (09-26-1992) is wanted and a suspect for a homicide and arson in Renton, Washington that occurred on Friday morning.

Renton Police assisted with a residential fire and found a 15-year-old female repeatedly stabbed, beaten and  left in the home when the fire was set.

Lane and the female victim had broken up two weeks ago. A temporary warrant has been established for Lane.

Lane’s green 2001 Mazda Protege was abandoned in Logan County on I-35 at mile marker 161 southbound. A note was left on the car that said, “gone for gas”.

He is listed as a white male, 5’9 and 155 pounds with brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a green baseball cap, dark jacket, blue jeans and athletic shoes.

OHP urges you not to pick up any hitchhikers and to call 9-1-1 or *55 if you spot him.

    Thank you to the person who called authorities. This happened in my community. Jessica and Jarod were both friends of my sons. This has been devestating! Our whole community has been on edge waiting for his capture. The person who called the police could have ignored him and kept going but they didn’t. You are a hero! Thank you for getting involved!
