Last week The Tulsa Police Department used Facebook to ask the public Wednesday for help tracking down a woman named Lorraine Graves, who they suspected as an accessory in the March slaying of Eric Graves. When she responded to the Facebook post to ask about a reward, she was arrested.
The TPD posted about Lorraine Graves on the Weekly Most Wanted post, Tuesday: “The Tulsa Police Department is looking for information about the whereabouts of Lorraine Graves,” the post read. “Lorraine Graves is charged with Accessory to Murder. Detectives say she was involved in the city’s 10th homicide of 2021 where Eric Graves was shot and killed at the St. Thomas Square Apartments.”
Two other suspects allegedly involved in the murder of Eric Graves — “Jayden and Gabriel Hopson — have been charged with murder and are already being held in police custody.”
A normal person seeing a Facebook post from the police calling them a weekly most wanted would continue to quietly shelter in place. But Lorraine Graves was either insulted or taunting the police when she commented on the post using her real name. Asking “What’s where’s the reward money at, (sic).”
Well, perhaps the reward money is hidden in the same place as Lorraine’s brains. She was immediately warned by other commentators.
“Giiiiirl you better stay off social media they can track you !!” one person commented.
“Aint gonna be as funny when you get processed,” said another.
Unfortunately for Lorraine Graves, the Tulsa Police Department was also reading the comments. The TPD’s next Facebook post read:
Weekly Most Wanted arrested after commenting on our post about her
On Wednesday, we posted Lorraine Graves as the Weekly Most Wanted for Accessory to Murder in the homicide of Eric Graves earlier this year.
Shortly after that, Lorraine Graves started commenting on our post asking about reward money.
On 7/15/21 around 4:30 p.m., detectives with our Fugitive Warrants unit arrested Graves in north Tulsa near 36th St. N. and Garrison Ave.
Graves is charged with Accessory to Murder. Her bond is set at $500,000.
This is an arrest, not a conviction.
Thinning the herd indeed. If she is convicted of accessory to the murder of Eric Graves (whose relationship to the suspect is unknown), she may rue the day she joined Facebook, or at the very least, she will regret that one comment.
She may also regret her hairstyle in this picture which proves that booking shots are just as lousy as driver’s license photos.
Looking at that hairstyle, I bet that justice is happy that justice is blind.
