An Oklahoma woman who was wanted for her role in a fatal shooting was captured last week after she commented on a police department’s Facebook post — to inquire about a reward for her arrest.
KTUL reported that Lorraine Graves, who was arrested on July 15, was accused of being an accessory in a March 13 shooting that killed Eric Graves, 30, and injured another man at a Tulsa apartment complex. It is not immediately clear how Lorraine and Eric Graves were related.
On July 14, the Tulsa Police Department posted a Facebook message seeking information about Lorraine Graves’ whereabouts. The fugitive allegedly responded to the police’s post about her, asking “where’s the reward money at.”
In a follow-up post, Tulsa police said they arrested Lorraine Graves a day after she responded to their Facebook post. Police did not say whether her comment on their Facebook page resulted in her capture.
Lorraine Graves was charged with being an accessory to murder. Her bond was set at $250,000.
Brothers Jayden and Gabriel Hopson, 19 and 20, were arrested for Eric Graves’ slaying nearly two weeks after the March 13 shooting. Records indicated that they remain jailed as they face first-degree murder charges
