On Sunday, February 27, 2022, at approximately 7:30 p.m., the Arlington Police Department responded to a home in the 1900 block of Longmeadow Drive to investigate a reported stabbing. A man returned home from the store to find his 55-year-old wife unresponsive and bleeding in the front yard.

She was pronounced deceased at the scene.

 Investigation of the incident led detectives to believe the attacker was 26-year-old Nathan Woodard, who is the victim’s son.

 Officers immediately launched an extensive search of the surrounding area, however, Mr. Woodard was not found. Detectives have obtained a warrant for Mr. Woodard’s arrest and are continuing to search for him.

 A recent booking photo of Mr. Woodard from a January 4, 2022 arrest for Criminal Mischief is attached to this release for public dissemination. Anyone who sees him or has information about his whereabouts is requested to call 911 immediately. Mr. Woodard should be considered armed and dangerous – and members of the public should not approach him if they see him.

 The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office will identify the deceased once the next of kin have been notified.
