Search widens for murder suspect

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

CAPE GIRARDEAU -- A fugitive wanted for a Cape Girardeau murder will have to avoid contact with police nationwide after the city police department posted a notice of her arrest warrant on a national database.

Tambra T. Turner, 29, of Sikeston, Mo., faces a possible death sentence for the early Friday shooting death of Chabreshea R. Egson at Egson's home at 1523 N. Spanish St. Prosecutors have charged Turner with first-degree murder, armed criminal action and burglary in the shooting death.

The warrant for Turner is posted on the National Crime Information Center database as well the Missouri Uniform Law Enforcement System, or MULES, database. Both systems alert police officers of outstanding arrest warrants when they check the name of someone being screened after, for example, a traffic stop.
