Police have arrested a stripper named "Pocahontas" in a capital murder investigation.

Luerissie Ross was arrested Tuesday morning in Katy. Police say Ross confessed to helping arrange the robbery and fatal shooting of a man in February. Officers say two friends of Ross fatally wounded Budrohoe Briscoe during the robbery. He died about two weeks later.

"We know there is another case. In that case, the victim has not chosen to cooperate with us, so we believe that others exist; others may feel uncomfortable or embarrassed about coming forward," said C.P. Abbey with HPD Homicide Division.

Besides Ross, officers have arrested another person in this case and have a third person of interest.

Ross, 20, is charged with capital murder.
