Arkansas man wanted for double murder reportedly spotted in Georgia

The U.S. Marshals Service and local police are in search of an Arkansas man, who allegedly killed his girlfriend and son, and may be hiding in Georgia.

Jory Worthen is wanted on two counts of capital murder and is suspected of killing his girlfriend and 4-year-old son in Camden, Arkansas, according to a media release from the U.S. Marshals Service. Photos of Worthen and the release were posted on the Facebook page of Gonzalez Bonding Service, which is based in Reidsville, Georgia. Worthen reportedly was seen Monday night in Sylvester, which is about 155 miles southeast of Atlanta.

Authorities say he was last seen in a late-model red Chevrolet Camaro, which was driven by a black male with dreadlocks, according to the bonding company. Witnesses said Worthen was wearing a black shirt, dark jeans and a blue baseball cap. He is clean-shaven, sports several tattoos and has medium-length dark hair.

There is a $7,000 reward for information leading to locating Worthen. He is considered armed and dangerous. Call in tips to the U.S. Marshals Service at 800-336-0102 and submit confidential tips online at www.usmarshals.gov/tips
