Double homicide suspect Jory Worthen arrested in California by U.S. Marshall’s


UPDATE 8:50 P.M.: The Camden police department has confirmed Worthen is in custody, and will hold a 10 a.m. press conference on Tuesday to share more information.

ORIGINAL STORY: Jory Worthen, who is alleged to have murdered his girlfriend and her 4-year-old son at her home in Camden last year, has been arrested in Burbank, California by U.S. Marshalls according to a family spokesperson.

Worthen allegedly murdered Alyssa Cannon, 20, and her 4-year-old son, Braydon Ponder, on June 13, 2019 in their home in Camden. The bodies were discovered on June 25.

Authorities found Worthen’s pick-up truck at the residence, but the victim’s white 2007 Honda Accord was missing. The vehicle was later found July 22, 2019, in the parking lot of a Burger King restaurant in Seattle.

The Camden Police Department charged Worthen with two counts of capital murder, and the U.S. Marshals, who have been assisting local authorities with the case since June 2019, obtained a federal warrant for Worthen in February.

He has been on the run ever since, and was listed as a Top 15 Most Wanted person by the U.S. Marshall’s.

Information on the arrest came from a family member of Worthen’s. No information has been released by the U.S. Marshall’s office at the time of publication.
