No one has been caught. Rumors say it was a friend of the family and, if so, you are completely safe. Grudge stuff, you know.

I was told by someone that Jerrys daughter (in her 20's) betty ann was dating Marty and that Jerry was upset that she had left her good husband for this troublemaker. Yes, this man has shot several people in the past.

I think people should be more informed about the shooting. If they have a suspect, which I have heard that they do, than the public should know who it is and if they are in custody. We should all contact WPSD and stay on them to get more information out.

WPSD needs to be ashamed of themselves. I caught the 10 PM newscast and they did not mention it at all! Local and Latebreaking my foot! Heck, it was the front page story in this morning's Paducah Sun!

I think the number one suspect may have an alibi. This might be what is delaying the pubic information release. I don't know...

Last I heard there was another "person of interest
", namely one John Nichols or Nicholson who was recently released fron the Marshall Co. Detention Ctr. Any info should be directed to the appropriate authority!

Latest is the victim's son Jerry Eldridge Jr. is to be released from the Marshall Co. jail this weekend.He is the type of person that will likely commit additional crimes in the future. Not known to what degree this guy is capable, but caution need be used if he's around!
thanks for the info

Has anyone heard anything else about this?? This was a big thing that happened in Murray and I cant believe nothing else has been said about this or they havent posted an ID to keep a look out for.

Hush, Hush, seems to be the sound about this murder case!!!

I cant believe theres been no news release from the sheriff office, with a killer on the loose in calloway county. Its rather scary, especially when a person lives so close to this crime scene.

I would like to defend WPSD, they came to my house some time after the shooting to see what the neighbors thought because the state police wasn't releasing any info, they are in the dark as much as anyone else. Gabriel (the reporter) is trying.

I would like to defend WPSD, 'gabriel' (the reporter came to my house trying to get any information they could because the state police isn't releasing any info, so they are in the dark as much as everyone else. I think there is something fishy about this case.

No need to defend WPSD, just saying that if the media would stay after the police than maybe we could all find out something. We know they are in the dark along with all of us. But they can get answers that sometimes we can't get.

Im sure as soon as KSP find out something or get any leads they will let everyone know whom it is. But I can see everyone including me would like to see this person caught.
