BREAKING NEWS: A Crimestoppers tip led to the arrest of a man wanted for murder in the case of a man found naked and wrapped in a sheet in the back seat of a car in rural Jefferson County.
Deputies have arrested 27-year-old Cody Lewis in Pennington. Lewis is the third suspect in the murder case.
Lewis was taken into custody around 7 p.m. Thursday by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office with the assistance of several other agencies.
Lewis was wanted for his role in the murder of a man found dead in a car on South China Road on April 5.
Officers discovered 53-year-old Kevin Moyer's naked body wrapped in a sheet. Investigators say he died from traumatic injuries.
Lewis was taken into custody without incident. Deputies are currently pursuing the charge of harboring a fugitive against several family members and friends who have assisted Lewis in hiding from law enforcement over the past two weeks.
Twenty-one year-old Christopher Harmon and 31-year-old Yiannis Mihail are also behind bars in the Jefferson County Jail, each charged with Moyer's murder.
