Suspect sought in killing surrenders



The Cincinnati Enquirer

COVINGTON - A man accused in a warrant of killing a Cincinnati man last month turned himself in Thursday at the Kenton County Jail.

Matthew W. Smith, 26, of Covington was wanted as a suspect in the murder of Jason Bourrage, 22, of Cincinnati. Bourrage's body was found last Friday in Covington's Goebel Park, said Covington Police Lt. Col. Mike Kraft.

Police have not revealed how Bourrage died.

Police officials have said they think Bourrage was killed during a drug deal he engaged in with Smith and Thomas Toll, 43, of Covington.

Toll was arrested Tuesday and charged with complicity to murder and robbery, and tampering with physical evidence.
