Grand Prairie, Texas - Christian Overton, 26, has been arrested in connection with the death of Tracey Hey, 51, who was found dead in a minivan parked in a Grand Prairie parking lot in May.

Back in May 2021, Hey was found dead inside her gray minivan in a parking lot in Grand Prairie near East Avenue On Tuesday, police stated they identified Overton as a suspect, most likely due to surveillance video where a man (appearing to be Overton) can be seen walking near the minivan where Hey's body was found. He was arrested Aug. 17 by authorities at his home in Arlington.

Overton reportedly had no personal connection to or relationship with Hey. Police are still trying to determine a motive. The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office said Hey’s cause of death was undetermined.

Overton was being held in the Grand Prairie jail Tuesday, with bail set at $1 million.
