Police Arrest Recent Parolee Wanted In Fatal Stabbing

SUPERIOR TOWNSHIP (WWJ) UPDATE 6:47 p.m. Police have arrested Stanley Harrison – wanted in connection with the murder of Shandar Turner.

“He is the boyfriend, they had a relationship together, he was just released from prison on Tuesday, the twenty-fifth, just from witness statements and the investigation the detectives have gone through that led him to be the primary suspect,” said Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Spokesman Derrick Jackson.


He was just released from prison a few days ago; and now authorities say 35-year-old Stanley Harrison is already suspected in a fatal stabbing.

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s officials say Harrison was out on parole after serving time on a drug and robbery conviction when they believe he killed a 23-year-old woman, early Friday morning, in Superior Township.

Deputies who were called to the 8900 block of MacArthur Blvd., at around 2:30 a.m., to investigate a reported stabbing found the victim — identified as Shandar Marie Turner — critically injured in front of her home.

She was transported to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Harrison and Turner had what a Sheriff’s Office spokesman described as “a domestic relationship. ”

Annarbor.com reported Turner was the mother of twin children, about 4 or 5 years old, and the daughter of Donna Turner, who was recently convicted of fatally stabbing her boyfriend in Ypsilanti.

Sheriff’s officials are now looking for Harrison, who should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone who has information about the stabbing or Harrison’s whereabouts is asked to call Detective Sinks 734-260-1401 or D/Sgt Archer at 734-260-7997. Information can also be called into the W.C.S.O. Confidential Tip line at 734-973-7711 or to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP.
