Man arrested in Henderson after being featured on 'America's Most Wanted'


A man accused of child molestation was arrested Tuesday in Henderson after being profiled on "America's Most Wanted."

Lonnie Ray Correll, wanted in Oklahoma on charges of molesting an 11-year-old girl, surrendered to Henderson police. He is being held without bail at the Henderson Detention Center pending extradition.

Correll was featured on the Fox television show Saturday night. A viewer called Henderson police and said Correll was staying in the Desert Sands RV Park on Sunset Road.

When detectives arrived to investigate, Correll had fled, police said.

Correll, who has been in Henderson about two months, had been hiding in a nearby desert area since the show aired.
