ELGIN, Okla. – An Oklahoma man who was wanted in connection to a body found in a tub was arrested 600 miles away from where the alleged crime happened.

Donovan Dixon was arrested in Scott, Louisiana this week, according to KSWO.

An informant reportedly told investigators Dixon was staying at a home in Scott.

Authorities say Dixon was the last person to see Chester Morris III alive.

Investigators say Dixon, Morris, Mike Ball and Cynthia Carlisle were partying at an apartment in Elgin, Oklahoma when the party got out of control.

Ball allegedly helped Morris inject some heroin, and then Morris passed out.

After decorating Morris’ body with markers and shaving cream, the group tried to resuscitate him using CPR.

When that didn’t work, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says that Dixon injected Morris with methamphetamine.

No one called 911 that night, according to police records.

In fact, investigators say Ball and Carlisle went to Lawton to buy more meth, and that while they were there, Dixon called to tell them Morris had died.

They say that the three tried to clean Morris’ body, and then Dixon and Carlisle left.

Ball waited until mid-morning to seek help.

Ball was arrested and booked into the Comanche County jail for second degree manslaughter and distribution of a controlled dangerous substance.

Carlisle was arrested as a material witness.

Dixon remains in a Louisiana jail, awaiting an extradition hearing.

He is facing a second-degree manslaughter charge.
