U.S. Marshals think capital murder suspect Jory John Worthen is no longer in South Arkansas.
The Marshals Service posted on Wednesday a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Jory John Worthen. Worthen, 24, of Bearden is wanted for the murder of his girlfriend and her son, Alyssa Renee’ Cannon, 20, and Marshall Braydon Ray Ponder, 4. They were found Tuesday, June 25 at her home at 1338 Ronald Drive in Camden.
On Thursday, the Marshals Service issued a statement saying Marshals have information leading them to focus their search in the Western U.S. and Canada.
Worthen is 6 feet, 2 inches tall, weighs 157 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes. He has multiple tattoos on the underside of both forearms, one saying “Matthew 7-6” on his right forearm; on his right hand; on his chest, including one of a skull with wings; and barbed wire on his left bicep.
Tips can be called in to the U.S. Marshals at 800-336-0102 .
Worthen may be in possession of Cannon’s white-colored Honda Accord with Arkansas license plate number 921YBE.
Camden Police Chief Boyd Woody previously posted a $1,000 reward from his personal funds. Others have since pledged additional amounts to a reward for information leading to Worthen’s capture and conviction.
It’s known that Worthern was alive at least two days after the bodies were discovered. Police allege that on Thursday, June 27, Worthen met with Montez Charles-Xavier Woods, 22, near Chidester.
Woods has been charged with hindering apprehension.
