ATTAPULGUS, GA (WALB) - Sheriff''s deputies rummaged through mud, plants, and even snakes today searching for the weapon used to kill 29-year-old James Christian two weeks ago.
"We're trying to dig a trench and pump water out to make it easier and we're sweeping the area with metal detectors," said Captain Chip Nix, investigator for the Decatur County Sheriff's office.
On April 8th, Christian was shot once in the chest outside his home off Bruce Road in Attapulgus.
The investigation led deputies to a swamp area off Hwy 241 today. It's where witnesses say the the weapon was tossed after the murder.
GBI agents were there to help, along with the county road department.
Florida Fish and Wildlife even brought along their dogs for the search. They're trained to sniff out gun powder and even oils left on the gun.
And investigators plan on making arrests soon.
"So far we've been able to narrow it down to a couple of suspects, we're headed in the right direction. We feel confident with the case," said Capt. Nix.
As the day was coming to an end, the search ended.
At 5:05pm investigators found the gun.
Investigators now believe the two murder suspects were at James Christian's home to rob him. Though investigators have narrowed down their suspects, they still want your help...if you have any information, call the Decatur County Sheriff's Office.
