Update: Cassandra Pitka turned herself in on Thursday night and spoke with detectives, police said in a statement Friday morning. The search continues for another witness, a man whose name is unknown, police said.
A man Anchorage police wanted to talk to in connection with a homicide in Spenard on Monday turned himself in Wednesday night.
Thomas Horton, 23, was described as a "person of interest" in the death of a 36-year-old man whose body was found Monday in the 1100 block of Chugach Way, police said.
Tyshaun Gray's homicide was "not a random act" and the people involved knew each other, police have said. Gray didn't live at the apartment building where his body was found.
Horton was questioned after he turned himself in to detectives and arrested on a charge of third-degree misconduct involving a weapon for being a felon in possession, according to an Anchorage Police Department statement Thursday morning.
He was taken to the Anchorage jail and could face additional charges, police say. Detectives still want to speak with two witnesses: Cassandra Pitka and an adult male whose name is unknown.
Anyone with information about the witnesses can call the non-emergency police dispatch line at 311 and hit option 1. Anonymous calls can also be made to Crime Stoppers at 907-561-STOP.
