KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Days after Shawnee police began investigating Monica Lee's homicide on May 9, they asked the public to be on the lookout for 53-year-old Gregory P. Wright, who was identified as a person of interest in the case.

Wright was arrested in Virginia Beach earlier in June, and Johnson County prosecutors are awaiting his extradition back to Kansas on a charge of possession of stolen property for allegedly driving Lee's car. A murder charge has yet to be filed against anyone in the case.

Wright is currently booked in the Virginia Beach city jail as a fugitive-felon, his return date is unknown at present, but he's being held without bond.

Shawnee police previously said that Wright may have been living at Arbor Square Apartments with Lee where her body was found, her car was missing immediately after she was killed. Police haven't said how she was killed, but say her autopsy proves it was a homicide.
