RACINE, Wis. - A woman has been arrested for harboring/aiding a felon in reference to the Brittany Booker homicide in Racine. A reward is offered for information leading to the arrest of Terry Jackson Jr., wanted for killing Booker, a mother of six.
Police and U.S. Marshals are searching for Jackon Jr., 41, who they believe is armed and dangerous. Also, Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to his whereabouts and arrest.
"It is tragedy beyond measure for six children to be without their mother," said Racine Police Chief Maurice Robinson.
There is a growing memorial for Brittany Booker at 13th and Villa in Racine. It is where police say they found her body in her car Sunday morning, April 24.
"I have no rhyme or reason for why you could kill someone. I don’t know," Robinson said.
Racine police say their suspect in Booker's homicide is Terry Jackson, Jr. Chief Robinson said police and U.S. Marshals have searched for him at several locations in the city.
"We weren’t able to locate him, but we were able to locate a vehicle he had been traveling in," Robinson said.

Police said they were already looking for Jackson prior to the Booker homicide. U.S. Marshals say Jackson attacked Booker and another person in February – leading to arrest warrants.
"We have been searching for him diligently, but somehow, he has managed to elusive us so far," the chief said.
Police are tight-lipped now about how the two incidents are connected – and what happened the day Booker died.
"He was able to make his way into her home. We won’t discuss subsequent to that. At some point, she left the home, and we were able to locate her in a vehicle," Robinson said.
While police search for Jackson, Booker's loved ones search for answers – hoping the person accused in her death is found soon.
Officials say Jackson stands 5'9" tall and weighs 210 pounds. Police say if you see him, you should not approach him.
