Police are looking for a man they believe may have answers about the Jan. 11 death of an East St. Louis woman who was killed while her one-year-old son was at home with her.

While police have not named him as a suspect, officials confirmed they are looking for Tyler Evans for questioning in the death investigation of 29-year-old Catherine Jackson.

Illinois State Police said Evans is also wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service on unrelated charges.

Jackson had four children and was eight months pregnant at the time of her death, according to her sister Chanda Meeks.

Only the youngest was at home with her when she died.
