The news of Strover’s escape and wanted state also made its approach to people who earn a living to the broadcast waves.
Atlanta ABC affiliate WSB-TV reporter Matt Johnson and photojournalist Joe Booker were putting up their Thursday night story when Strover ran past their live truck.
The cops were then called. The news team recorded the arrest.
“We had been driving, we saw somebody run in front of usgo into the forests,” Johnson said in a follow up report. “We needed to look at ourselves and say’Did that just happen?’ We simply didn’t believe there was a chance, 14 hours later, this defendant was in the area, but that’s just what the scenario was. We created a quick U-turn, we flagged down the closest police officer, let him know the circumstance. He ran across the road, got the defendant to surrender.”

Strover is said to have murdered 32-year-old Walter Wood in late February. The deceased man’s family advised the regional Fox affiliate in Phoenix they had been”mad and disappointed” over the day-long escape.
