PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - The deadly shooting happened at a house on the corner of West Morgan and North 5th streets on July 23.
"We didn't find any identification on the body at the time," Lt. Scott Snyder told Region 8 News. "We have a fairly certain ID of who the victim is but until we have that confirmed through the crime lab, through the medical examiner's office and it's returned to us and the coroner's office, we're not comfortable with a speculative ID."
Lt. Snyder said some statements they've received have not been credible either. However, they have been following up on every lead since the shooting last Thursday.
"We've been conducting interviews nonstop. Literally, night and day since Thursday evening, Thursday afternoon," Lt. Snyder said.
Lt. Snyder said for the Paragould Police Department, this is an atypical homicide investigation.
"A number of parties had been present at that residence that day, there are a number of potential motives, there's some theories. We're looking into all of those and exploring all of those," Lt. Snyder said. "We've got physical evidence that's pending with the state crime lab, that we hope will reveal a little more to us once we get that back."
Lt. Snyder said once the crime lab releases a positive identification on the murder victim to Greene County Coroner Dick Pace, he will release the name to Paragould police.
