(WFTV) – Markeith Loyd, the man wanted in connection with the shooting death of Master Sgt. Debra Clayton, has been caught.
Orlando police Chief John Mina held a news briefing Tuesday about the search for fugitive Markeith Loyd.
Mina said officials altered a photograph after a receiving tip that Loyd might have changed his appearance after the Jan 9 shooting outside of Walmart that left Master Sgt. Debra Clayton dead.
“We have received a tip that he may have changed his appearance or may have shaved his head,” Mina said.
Crimeline has received more than 1,400 tips from the community, and Orlando police tweeted that the reward has been raised to $125,000.
It’s been more than a week since Clayton was gunned down in front of a Pine Hills Walmart, and there is still no sign of Loyd.
