LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – A Scott County woman, on the run since a manslaughter warrant was issued in May, is now in jail thanks to an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers.

Jordan Wright was arrested in Owen County early Wednesday morning.

The arrest warrant says the 21-year-old sold $20 worth of heroin to a woman who later died of an overdose. Detectives say they found several conversations where Wright was discussing the drug transaction with the victim and other witnesses.

She’s now facing manslaughter and drug trafficking charges.
