The victim, later identified as 38-year-old Margaret Sweet who went by “Mae” and sometimes used the alias Shelby Jamison, was discovered by her father who was returning to his residence after visiting a family member at a local hospital.  Ms. Sweet was lying on the front porch of the residence with an apparent gunshot wound. She was declared deceased on the scene by medical personnel.  Autopsy would conclude manner of death was homicide resulting from a gunshot wound.

During the investigation, it was found that a witness heard a disturbance at approximately 11:00 p.m. the evening of the homicide near the residence where Ms. Sweet’s body was located. The witness reported hearing a male voice yelling at someone, followed by a gunshot. The investigation continues as this case remains an open unsolved homicide case.
