FLINT, Mich. (AP) – Court records show bank surveillance video and a Craigslist ad helped authorities identify an Oklahoma murder suspect and find him in Flint.

Lance Alan Solomon was arrested Tuesday in Flint by the Michigan State Police Fugitive Team. The 50-year-old is charged with first-degree murder in the death of James Fox.

Fox was found dead last month under a bed in his Logan County, Oklahoma, home. An autopsy determined he died of blunt-force trauma to the head.

Oklahoma investigators say Solomon was with Fox in early December when he withdrew a large amount of cash from his bank. They also say Fox’s missing cellphone was used to call a Houston man whom Solomon met on Craigslist.

The Flint Journal ( ) reports investigators tracked Solomon down in Flint through purchases to Fox’s missing credit card.
