Searching For Witness to Murder

Lawton Police are continuing to search for a witness in a murder investigation after his ex-girlfriend said he tried to kidnap her.

Carlos Melendez-Salazar’s ex-girlfriend told police he tried to force her into his car and then physically assaulted her as they drove down the street.  He was arrested in October and later charged with Threatening Another Witness in the same murder case he is set to testify in.
Salazar witnessed the shooting death of Jonathan Shepherd in May 2013.  The man charged in that murder, Kenneth Nobles, is in jail awaiting his preliminary hearing.
