Texas Detectives Use Online Database to Locate Murder Suspect

September 23, 2010  | 

During the week of Sept. 15, police in Huntsville, Texas, used LeadsOnline, an online database that tracks and recovers stolen property, to locate a suspect in the murder of 17 year old high school student K'Lynn Sherrie Kohr.

At first, the detectives on the case could not locate the suspect, 27-year-old ex-con Jerwoody "Jared" Moler. After entering his name in the LeadsOnline database, however, they found that Moler had recently sold a stolen item to a pawn shop in Dallas. The database provided officers with the seller information provided by the pawn shop.   

Detective Marvin Hyvl contaced the pawn shop manager to obtain security video footage from the time of the sale. The video showed the suspect with a bandaged hand. Using this information, the police tracked Moler traveling north. Cell phone records and the assistance of state and federal agencies helped to apprehend Moler outside of Des Moines, Iowa, only a few days after the murder. He was taken into custody by Iowa State Police and extradited back to Huntsville.

"The LeadsOnline hit helped our agency locate the suspect much quicker and prevent him from avoiding apprehension," according Det. Hyvl. LeadsOnline allows police to work across jurisdictional lines. The database uses serial and model numbers as well as descriptions to track items in real time. The Des Moines Police Department subscribes to the service.

"We send our condolences to the family and friends of K'Lynn Sherrie Kohr for the loss of their loved one," according to Dave Finley, president and CEO of LeadsOnline. "We also commend the hard work of the officers of the Huntsville Police Department, Texas Rangers, U.S. Marshalls, Gulf Coast Fugitive Task Force, Iowa State Police, and U.S. Border Patrol involved for solving this horrible and senseless crime."
