Findlay, OH – Yesterday afternoon, members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force (NOVFTF) and the Findlay Police Department arrested Ruben Parraz, 56. Parraz was wanted by the Lucas County Sheriff’s Office for two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide.
According to the Toledo Police accident report, Parraz, of Toledo, was driving west on Miami St. around 11 p.m. on Friday, December 9, 2022, when he began to turn left onto the I-75 North entrance ramp and into the path of an oncoming vehicle. That car, which was carrying 27-year-old Quantrell Thomas, 20-year-old Harley Conley, and a 1-year-old infant, struck Parraz’s car with its front end. Conley was rushed to the hospital where she died as a result of her injuries.
Parraz was indicted earlier this month in Lucas County for aggravated vehicular homicide for the death of Ms. Conley. Earlier this week, the investigation was turned over to the NOVFTF. Investigators were able to narrow down Parraz’s hiding spot to a home in Findlay. The NOVFTF and the Findlay Police Department found Parraz in an associate’s home and he was arrested without incident. He will remain in Hancock County until he can be extradited back to Lucas County.
U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott stated, “Nothing will bring the victim back to her family but hopefully the indictment and arrest of this suspect will begin the process of justice to her family.”
