The Upper Arlington Police Division is asking for help finding a vehicle and a “person of interest” in their investigation of a June 11 homicide.
The police division issued a bulletin at 4:57 p.m. Friday, June 15, asking anyone with information about a dark green 1997 Ford Expedition, Eddie Bauer edition, with Ohio license plate GRG8563, to contact them at 614-583-5160.
The vehicle is registered to Jeffrey Blaire Harrison, described as a black male, 6-feet tall and 195 pounds. Police are seeking information about his whereabouts.
Blaire has been named a person of interest in the June 11 death of Charles McCoy, 31, of Columbus, who was stabbed outside China Dynasty, 1689 W. Lane Ave.
Following the incident, police issued a warrant and charged Jeffery Lamar Smith with aggravated murder. They said Smith was picked out of a photo lineup by eyewitnesses who said he was in an altercation with McCoy.
After turning himself in to the Columbus Division of Police June 12, Smith’s $1.5 million bond was waived by Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien, and Smith was released on his own recognizance from Franklin County jail around 1:30 a.m. June 14.
Smith’s attorney says his client is the victim of mistaken identity.
Officer Bryan McKean said June 15 that charges against Smith remain pending.
