Murder suspect arrested after commenting on police's Facebook post

A woman who had been on police wanted list caused her own arrest after commenting on the police’s Facebook post made to announce a bounty placed on her head.

Murder suspect arrested after commenting on police's Facebook post

The Tusla Police Department had made a post on Facebook to seek information about Lorraine Graves’s whereabouts, with a promise to pay the informant for any useful tipoff.

Then, she went under the post to enquire about the money, asking: "Where's the reward money at?”

The Tusla, Oklahoma woman was suspected to be an accomplice in the shooting of Eric back in March at an apartment complex.

While two men had been arrested and charged with the killing, Lorraine was at large, compelling the police to seek the public’s help to arrest her.

After commenting on the police’s Facebook post, the law enforcement agency took a screenshot of the comment which helped them arrest her on Friday, July 16.

She has been charged with being an accessory in the murder of Eric Graves.

The police later returned to Facebook to share details of Lorraine’s arrest with photos of her smiling while in handcuffs.

It is unclear what was funny to her while in the cuffs. Maybe the way she caused her own arrest by merely commenting on the police’s Facebook post tickled her.
