Fargo, N.D. (WDAY-TV) – A man area police were told to be on the lookout for is wanted for murder in Oklahoma.

According to the Fargo Police Department, law enforcement in Tulsa, Oklahoma issued an arrest warrant for Scott Platz in connection to a murder investigation.

The family of the victim of the murder reached out to Fargo and Moorhead police earlier this month because they believed Platz was staying in Fargo.

I joined the WDAY 6 news team in September of 2013 as a weekend anchor and reporter. I am currently the Assitant News Director and 5p.m. anchor. Previous to arriving in the F-M area, I worked as a broadcast journalist at the CBS affiliate (KTVQ) in Billings, Montana (sidenote: my hometown). I have worn many hats in my young broadcast career as an anchor, reporter, producer, sports producer and online producer. However, my favorite role to play is storyteller. Off the clock (are we ever really off the clock?) I enjoy taking in a sporting event on TV or in person. On the professional level, I root for Seattle teams. As a graduate of the University of Montana, I also enjoys FCS football (but forgive my allegiance). I also enjoy reading, watching movies, listening to good music and frolicking in the outdoors. I enjoy those things all the more when I can do them with my wife and our daughter. If you have a story idea for me, or just want to say hello, you can send me an email!
