The man wanted for first-degree murder in the killing of 21-year-old Jordan "JP" Peterson surrendered in Texas on Saturday, Tucson police said.

Bryan Lamar Lee, 21, was aware he was wanted in Tucson in connection with the killing and turned himself in to the Houston Police Department. He was awaiting extradition to Tucson, said Tucson Police Department spokesman Sgt. Matt Ronstadt on Saturday.

An arrest warrant was issued for Lee on Tuesday.

Peterson was last heard from on Nov. 16 when he told his roommate that he would return to his home on Bella Vista Drive later that evening, Ronstadt said.

His truck was found by the Marana Police Department on Nov. 18.

On Sunday, TPD announced that a body found in the desert in Pinal County on Friday had tentatively been identified as Peterson.

Details about Lee's alleged involvement were not available.

Police ask anyone with information about the case to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
