Person of Interest in Louisville death caught in Colorado

HUERFANO CO., Colo. (WVLT) -- The man identified as a person of interest in the death of Dilrea Sue Lett, 60, was captured in Colorado Thursday evening, the Blount Co. Sheriff's Office announced.

James Howard Harmon, Jr., 43, was caught after being pulled over on Interstate 25. Harmon, who was in the back seat, reportedly initially gave the officer a fake name, but his Florida driver's license was found when authorities searched the car.

When officials ran Harmon's name, they found he was wanted on felony warrants in Tennessee, including Anderson and Blount Counties, and Florida.

He is currently being held in the Huerfano Co. Jail on weapons and drugs charges. Two people who were in the car with him are in custody as well.

Harmon is wanted in Blount Co. for the theft of Lett's 1999 Chrysler Sebring. Tennessee will have to extradite him on that charge.

The Criminal Investigation Division also wants to question Harmon about Lett's death. Lett's body was found in her burned home in Louisville on June 20. Her death was ruled a homicide.
