Son arrested in Lowell homicides


The son of a Lake County couple who were found bludgeoned and strangled late last week has been arrested as the only suspect in their deaths.

Sheriff John Buncich says 34-year-old Thomas Snow was captured in western Minnesota, after Indiana authorities tracked him there through his cell phone and the use of his parents‘ credit card.

Joyce and Clifford Snow were found dead Friday in their home near Lowell when officers went to the house on a request to check on their welfare.

Thomas Snow reportedly waived extradition during an appearance before a judge in Moorhead, Minnesota on Monday.

Sheriff Buncich told reporters that Snow had a criminal history for drug abuse, auto theft and for fleeing police officers.

He was arrested after a chase with police near the Minnesota-North Datoka state line.
