Burglary suspect linked to murder
“It’s unlikely we’ll be able to extradite him,” Harris said. “He’s facing a much more serious charge in Texas.”
McCollough, a retired Air Force colonel, flew combat missions as an F-4 pilot in Vietnam and served as deputy commander of now-closed Reese Air Force Base in Lubbock before his murder.
One specific instance connected to Lewis was a Feb. 14 burglary at a home off of Beacon Light Road in Ruston.
Lewis was tracked via a license plate number the victim managed to take down, sheriff’s deputies said.
