Homicide suspect escapes from tribal jail

PARKER, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities are searching for a homicide suspect who remains at large after escaping from the Colorado River Indian Tribes jail in Parker in western Arizona.

Authorities in La Paz County say 25-year-old Mickey Anderson was among three men who escaped Sunday by assaulting a detention officer but that the others were apprehended within hours.

A La Paz County Sheriff's spokesman referred questions about the homicide case to a jail police official, Capt. Stuart Harper, who did not immediately return a call Tuesday.

Anderson is described as Native American with close-cropped brown hair or a shaved head and brown eyes. He's 6-foot-1 and weighs 155 pounds.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the apprehension of Anderson.
