A family member turned in a murder suspect in Tulsa, Oklahoma, after a body was found dumped in the middle of a road.
Brayden Blough was charged this week with first-degree murder, possession of a stolen vehicle and obstructing an officer in connection to an Aug. 11 incident, according to Tulsa police.
On that day, officers responded to a road after a man was found covered in blood. The victim, 29-year-old Joseph Ervin Brown, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police reviewed nearby surveillance video and it showed a newer, white Toyota Corolla involved in the case.
A concerned family member called Tulsa police and identified the car as Blough’s, according to the agency.
Officers searched Bough’s vehicle and found a gun and ammo, according to Tulsa police. Authorities also found blood on a seat in the car, police stated.
Later that day, police found Blough at an apartment, and he was arrested after refusing to surrender to police. Tulsa police say Blough denied playing a part in the killing.
He is being held in jail without bail.
