Suspect arrested for Tacoma murder where man's body was found wrapped in tarp

Tacoma police have arrested a man in connection to a January homicide, where a body was found wrapped in a tarp.

On Jan. 6, police were called to the 200 block of East 23rd Street in downtown Tacoma around 3:30 a.m. after the body was called in. 

The medical examiner's office identified the victim as 30-year-old Jeremy Tomlinson. He died of gunshot wounds to the face and thigh and his death is being investigated as a homicide. 

Through their investigation, police were able to identify a suspect in Tomlinson's murder. 

30-year-old Tyrone Babbs was arrested on April 27 and was booked into jail for second-degree murder.

Babbs apparently took to Facebook to ask for help with a "disposal problem" and requested that the person wear clothes that could be disposed of. 

He apparently admitted to killing Tomlinson and hiding the body during police interrogation but has entered a plea of not guilty. 

Bail has been set at $1.5 million.
