CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Craighead County Sheriff Marty Boyd has released the name of the victim in the murder investigation in Lake City.

Jimmy Hall, 73, was found dead in his home Friday afternoon in Lake City.

Hall's neighbors said they were stunned to hear what happened to him the day before. 

They said Hall never bothered anyone and did not know why someone would wish him harm. 

Derek McCormick lives a few streets down from where Hall was found and said he feels for the family during this time.

"My son played ball for one of the family members," McCormick said. "We know the family, it seemed to be a quiet neighborhood and it really struck fear in us. We occasionally lock our doors but now it's something we want to make sure we lock all the time."

Others in the area are also scared.  They said they too would leave their doors unlocked at times but that changed when they heard of Hall's death.

No more information has been released at this time.
