Murder victim's family still searching for answers 32 years later

INDEPENDENCE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - A family is still searching for answers in a 1984 murder case.

A young couple from Independence County was murdered in their Fayetteville home on March 22, 1984.

Little Rock television station KARK re-examined some of the evidence from that 32-year-old case this week.

Families on both sides of the case say the evidence doesn't quite appear like it did back in the 1980s.

Lee and Karen Dickson were shot multiple times in their home while their 3-year-old son slept in another room.

The twist is that the main suspect in the case was found dead.
