Marysville—November 10th, 7:00 PM
Video and still images released by our agency yesterday (November 9th) resulted in multiple tips confirming that the male seen entering the passenger side of the black Nissan Altima just before it is driven from the crime scene is Lyon N. “Nick” Torns.
Detectives continue to investigate, and have obtained security video footage from a convenience store near the scene of the homicide. In this footage, the black Nissan Altima used in the murder (now impounded) is seen parking in front of the store doors and the below-pictured individual exits the driver’s seat and enters the store. The subject purchases cigarettes and exits the store shortly before police received a report of gunshots near what was revealed to be the scene of Jason Castle’s murder. This subject is wanted for questioning in our ongoing homicide investigation, and is suspected to be the driver of the Nissan Altima as it fled the crime scene.
The subject appears to be about six feet tall, wearing a black baseball cap with a black bandanna underneath, a dark blue North Face jacket, black sweatpants, black work boots, and there appears to be a small mark or tattoo on the left side of the subject’s neck.
It is unknown if this subject is armed, but should be considered dangerous. If you know or spot this person, do not approach them. Call 911 and report your sighting or tip to police immediately.
We thank the public for their continued and invaluable assistance with this case.
