Sheriff Eric Levett said his team of investigators met Monday morning to put a plan together to locate Jamichael Jones, the man whom deputies believe killed Orr.

Deputies visited places familiar to Jones and initiated ‘Knock and Talk’ to talk to those who may have known of his whereabouts.

One of those locations was the suspect’s mother’s home, officials said.


Levett said Jones mother was instrumental in his surrender after he called his mother and told her he wanted to turn himself in peacefully.

Jones then gave deputies a location where he would surrender and was subsequently arrested.

According to Levett, Jones is facing murder, aggravated assault, battery and home invasion charges. The investigation is ongoing.
