Missing woman’s husband arrested; he returned friend’s saw with blood on it
Jan. 22, 2020
The husband of an Oregon woman who has not been seen since Christmas was arrested on suspicion of her murder after he returned a borrowed circular saw with blood and tissue on its blade.
Tiffany Lazon, 37, is missing from her home in Albany, between Salem and Eugene. A relative called police on Jan. 8 to ask for a welfare check because she had not been heard from since Christmas, TV station KPTV reported.
At the time of his arrest Tuesday, her estranged husband, Craig Lazon, 42, was already in jail in an animal neglect case involving Tiffany’s cat.
Investigators say a circular saw that Craig Lazon had returned recently to a friend had traces of blood and tissue that matched Tiffany’s DNA, according to the state crime lab.
Craig Lazon had been arrested in 2015 on suspicion of trying to murder his wife. Tiffany Lazon told police he had kept her captive in their apartment for a week, beating and raping her. He then put her in a car and told her he was going to drown her in the Calapooia River — but when he went back into the house to retrieve his forgotten phone, she fled to a neighbor’s apartment.
The charges in that case were dismissed when a judge declared that Tiffany Lazon was not a credible witness.
