Arrest warrant issued for woman in connection to murder of man found under bridge

OKLAHOMA CITY – Police say they know who they are looking for in connection to the murder of a man whose body was found under a bridge last month.

Police say there is an arrest warrant for 24-year-old Jazmine Howard for aggravated robbery and first-degree murder in the death of Jose Lopez.

Jose Lopez was found dead near Reno and Council

Lopez was last seen at the OK Corral nightclub on June 9. A manager there told NewsChannel 4 he was a regular and that he saw him the night he disappeared.

Lopez's body was found June 13 under a bridge near Reno Avenue just east of Council. Authorities say his watch, wallet and phone were missing and bullet casings and ammo were found near his body.

According to the arrest affidavit, the GPS on Lopez's truck tracked it to a gas station down the street from the club. It was there that Howard was seen on surveillance video walking into the store.

Afterwards, the GPS shows the truck went to a nearby dental office, a hotel and then to the banks of the North Canadian River, near where Lopez's body was found.

The vehicle was then tracked to the Eden Cove apartments, where Howard lived.

Ultimately, the truck was found abandoned in northwest Oklahoma City, not too far from where Lopez was found. Blood was found on both the inside and outside of the vehicle, according to investigators. Meanwhile, his credit cards and other possessions were found in northeast Oklahoma City.

Police are still looking for Howard.
