An arrest report shows detectives tracked down Johnson to Oklahoma and arrested him after they received a letter sent anonymously that indicated he was in the hospital.

A second suspect, Ronald Meyers III, 39, was taken into custody in South Carolina shortly after Marr's death and charged with murder and the use of a two-way communications device to facilitate a felony.

According to the station, Marr died in an apartment belonging to a friend in Grassy Key from what officials determined to be a deadly mixture of alcohol and cocaine.


“Meyers was unable to facilitate the transaction but made arrangements for Johnson to sell Marr the cocaine on his behalf,” said Adam Linhardt, the spokesperson for the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, WPLG reported.

He continued, “Detectives executed a search warrant at the suspects’ residence and obtained evidence of that communication between Meyers and Johnson. Meyers and Johnson also removed evidence from their residence upon learning Marr died.”

Johnson was being held in the Tulsa County jail.
