WSP Troopers arrested a 32-year-old man in Spokane who was wanted out of Rochester, New York on a murder charge.
According to court documents, Robert Norry is accused of murdering his girlfriend on June 13. Court documents say her death was discovered by her parents, who hadn't heard from her for several days and went to her apartment last Friday to check in. No one answered, so they forced their way in, and that's when they saw their daughter dead on the ground. Police say she'd been dead for several days, cut to pieces with a knife and scissors. They say her blood had dried and actually glued her to the floor.
According to the documents, her parents the and police immediately suspected Norry, who left town without notice. Rochester Police sent out a nationwide bulletin for other law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for Norry's vehicle. On Sunday, June 17, Idaho State Police say a license reader pinged Norry's plates as he crossed from Idaho into Washington via I-90.
ISP sent WSP the alert, who dispatched a Trooper to find and arrest Robert Norry. Norry remains in the Spokane County Jail on a fugitive hold. He will likely be extradited back to Rochester in the coming weeks.
