Does anyone know if the suspect has been apprehended? Live only a few miles from the scene.

I know the family... and i hope that the suspect which is man by the name of marty is caught and dealt with harshly. I have no use of killers/murderers and people that attack others.

I heard the same name Lisa. I also agree with your feelings toward murderers.

I guess I don't understand. If the police were looking for a murderer, would they not put a description of the person out to public so they could turn him in if they see him and protect their own self if in contact with him.

On the other post pertaining the investigation, they are saying theres a rumor thats its a friend of the family but you are correct- if police are looking for someone you would think they would post a description of that person for places around this area.

Well, the way that I heard it they know who it is and if it's the person that I heard he has already been to prison for killing someone. That was years ago and it was over a woman of course, they two men met at or near a church to supposedly fight it out and one ended up dead. I heard that this is about the same situation, fighting over something. I just don't understand how you can shoot someone and be out of prison. If he brought a gun to a meeting to discuss or fight sounds like to me he was planning on trouble.

I heard the man that was in prison cut off the other mans head and buried it in a trailer park. Jerry Eldridge was my son's grandfather, my son is 3 years old and will never know his grandfather. Jerry Eldridge wasn't a stand up citizen, but he did not deserve what happened to him. His son tells me that the police have told him they are STILL looking for one more person involved in the crime, I guess that is why we haven't heard too much as to why the incident occurred. My thoughts are it was drug related. I googled Jerry Eldridge and found that they found 2 prescription bottles on the two that were arrested and they were bloody. The drugs were loritabs and sleeping pills. I also read that Jerry was beaten, and the gun that was used to shoot Jerry had a broken handle which now can't be found, this information coming from the woman who was arrested, ex-husband, where they took their clothes to burn after the crime. This is just disgusting and I hope they all get what they deserve and burn in hell for eternity. Nobody deserves to go like this, NOBODY.
