Warren Sloan Wanted in Slaying of 19-year-old Woman
The suspect in the brutal killing of a 19-year old in Fairfield last month was nabbed today in Fortuna.
Warren Herman Sloan III, 40, was reportedly in the Fortuna area after skipping town following the alleged stabbing in his hometown on March 31. The Fortuna Police Department worked with law enforcement in Fairfield, as well as with the United States Marshall’s Office, to locate Sloan.
At about 5:30 p.m., a patrolman observed Sloan walking along the 500 block of South Fortuna Boulevard. After he began walking towards the Six Rivers Motel, the cop made contact with Sloan and arrested him without incident.
Pictured at left, hers was the sixth homicide in Fairfield this year.
