(KMOV) – Authorities are asking for help locating a suspect after a woman died in a house fire on July 6.

Lakieshia Lane, 36, is suspected of homicide and arson after the fatal house fire Northwoods, according to police. Lane has not been charged. 

Police said 49-year-old Dana Williams died in the fire.

On July 15, authorities announced Lane as a ‘person of interest’.

Williams' brother earlier told News 4 that Lane had been staying at the home, but was later kicked out when her friendship with the family soured. He believed she was behind the blaze.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Lane are asked to contact St. Louis County Police at 314-889-2341 or by dialing 911.
