Name Released in Homicide Investigation in Coalfield – WECO News – Monday, April 18th, 2016

A name released from the homicide investigation we reported earlier.  Officials have informed us that Pete McCarroll is the victim of what is being investigated as a murder.  The call came in around 6:30 this morning.  Most information is still being withheld at this time as TBI investigates.

“Right now all we’re saying is we do have a body,” Morgan County Chief Deputy Steve Cochran said.

“TBI is up there along with our investigators, and we’re covering everything we can.”

Sources tell us the incident took place near Allied Metal Recovery and Refining on Gouge Hollow Rd in the Coalfield area.  Still no update on a suspect.

“We don’t have anyone in custody.  As far as a person of interest, we’re not giving that information out right now.  That’s all we can say.”

WECO will continue to follow this story.
