Joseph Richard Hermosillo is shown at his arrest Sunday morning.
TULSA, Oklahoma -- A tip led Tulsa Police to the arrest of a parole violator and person of interest in a recent murder. Joseph Richard Hermosillo, also known as "Joker," was taken into custody Sunday at about 12:45 a.m. at Club Imperio, 9300 E 46th Street.
Hermosillo was arrested on a parole violation after Oklahoma Department of Corrections officials say he cut off his ankle monitor about a week ago.
He was also named as a person of interest in the shooting death of Donnie Fitzpatrick earlier this month. Fitzpatrick's body was discovered January 14 near a creek in the 5800 block of East 15th Street.
Police said that Hermosillo removed his ankle monitor after hearing authorities wanted to interview him about Fitzpatrick.
