The U.S. Marshals need your help in the search for a man suspected of killing his girlfriend and her 4-year-old son in Arkansas.

The Alaska State Troopers put out an advisory saying 23-year-old Jory John Worthen of Bearden, Arkansas, is wanted on two counts of capital murder.

The advisory says back in June the bodies of 20-year-old Alyssa Renee’ Cannon and her son Marshall Braydon Ray Ponder were found at Cannon’s home.

U.S. Marshals say Worthen has not been seen since June 22, 2019, that’s three days before the bodies of his supposed victims were found.

U.S. Marshals say they have information he may be hiding in Alaska, Canada or somewhere in the western U.S.

Worthen is 6 feet, 2 inches tall, weighs 157 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. He has multiple tattoos: on the underside of both forearms, one saying “Matthew 7-6” on his right forearm; on his right hand; on his chest, including one of a skull with wings; and barbed wire on his left bicep.

Tips can be called into the U.S. Marshals at 800-336-0102 or submitted confidentially online at

or via the USMS Tips app.

There is a $5,000 reward for information that leads to Worthen’s arrest.
