He has been booked into the Arlington City Jail on one count of Murder.

We’d like to thank everyone for sharing our post from earlier today and for helping to keep an eye out for this suspect.

We’d also like to acknowledge the tireless work of our officers and detectives over the last 24 hours to find this dangerous criminal and get him off our streets.


We are asking for the public’s help to locate the suspect in a homicide that occurred Sunday evening.

On Feb 27, at approximately 7:30pm, officers responded to a home in the 1900 block of Longmeadow Drive to investigate a reported stabbing. A man returned home from the store to find his 55-year-old wife unresponsive and bleeding in the front yard.

She was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Investigation of the incident led detectives to believe her attacker was her son, Nathan Woodard.

We have obtained a warrant for his arrest and are actively looking for him.
