News Release
Albany Police arrest suspect in Missing Person Case -- Albany Police Case # 20-00214 - 01/21/20

On Tuesday, January 21, 2020, Albany Police Detectives continued follow-up on Tiffany Lazon’s disappearance and are investigating it as a homicide.

While investigating Lazon’s disappearance, detectives learned Craig Lazon had borrowed a battery-operated circular saw from a friend and returned the saw several days later.  The owner of the saw brought the information forward and turned the saw over to Albany Police Detectives.  The Oregon State Crime Lab inspected the saw, finding bodily tissue and blood on the saw.  The crime lab performed a forensic deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) test on the bodily tissue and blood which matched Tiffany Marie Lazon’s DNA.

As of January 21st, 2020, Albany Police have still not received any verifiable sightings of Tiffany Lazon or information on her whereabouts.  Numerous search warrants have been served during the past 5 days providing further evidence and support that Tiffany Lazon is deceased.

On January 21, 2020, at approximately 4:30 p.m., Albany Police Detectives completed a probable cause affidavit and arrested Craig Alexander Lazon on the following charge:

  • ORS 163.115  Murder   

The investigation is continuing, and no further information will be released at this time. Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call Albany Police Detectives at 541-917-7686.
