Reward offered for information on Walker stabbing suspect

WALKER, Mich. (WZZM) -Silent Observer is now offering a $1,000 reward for information leading them to 52-year-old Jack Howard Jacqmain. Jacqmain has eluded law enforcement since Wednesday. Jacqmain is believed to have stabbed 31 year-old Mark Moore at the Motel 6 in Walker.

"A couple of the leads have taken us to the Ionia and Lowell areas as well as Lansing area," said Walker Police Det. Dan Raap.

A stake out in Ionia this weekend was unsuccessful.

"We had a tip that he would show up at that location as it turned out he did not turn up at the location. We are still looking for him ,and we are considering that area still to be active, " Raap said.

Law enforcement says Jacqmain has no ties to his family which makes him hard to track.

"We have to really search areas such as homeless shelters, local motels, low budget motels and places like that," Raap said.
