A couple was arrested Thursday (March 26) at a Monroe County, Ga., campground in connection with a 1992 Kansas murder, television station WMAZ reported.
Kelly Jones and Roger Jones Sr. were living and working at the campground under false identities since last year, according to a news release from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.
An investigator from Monroe County, along with an investigator from the Ford County, Kan., Sheriff’s Department made contact with an employee at the campground named Jan Garner.
Garner matched a description of a suspect wanted by Kansas authorities. Investigators learned she was using the alias and was really Kelly Jones. Her arrest led to the arrest of her husband, the news release states.
On April 13, 1992, a crew found 25-year-old Patrick Howe’s body in a ditch just west of Dodge City, Kan. Patrick was beaten then strangled to death at the motel where he worked. The motel was run by the couple.
A search warrant was also served on March 26 on the camper and vehicle owned by the couple. Investigators discovered they used multiple identities during their years as fugitives.
In 2011, America’s Most Wanted featured a story on the fugitives.
