Tyler, TX – The U.S. Marshal’s Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force (JETF) arrested a homicide suspect from Logansport, LA. The JETF received a tip from Tyler-Smith County Crime Stoppers shortly after noon on May 12. The tip indicated that the Suspect, Jacorroyn Lavell Wilson, 24, was at a residence in the Pine Creek Town Homes area located at 2202 Loblolly in Tyler, Texas.
