FUGITIVE WANTED IN TACOMA September 16, 2016 —
Get in the middle of an argument with ‘Slim’ and you could end up dead. That’s what happened to one man. Yancy Ray is accused of murdering in Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood two weeks ago.
Officers say ‘Slim’ is his street name. He’s considered ‘armed and dangerous’ and detectives think he could be hiding in Portland, Oregon.
“He was arguing with a female,” says Tacoma Police Ofc. Loretta Cool. “The victim stepped in and intervened and broke up the argument. Mr. Ray left the scene after threatening to kill the victim. He came back a short while later and shot and killed the victim.”
This isn’t the first person Ray’s killed. He was convicted of manslaughter in 1986 — part of an extensive and violent criminal history in Washington and Oregon.
Yancy Ray is 50 years old, 6’2” and weighs 175 pounds.
He’s known to go by the fake last name, ‘Grayson.’
