    Murder in Lafayette County

    The Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the murder of a 69-year-old man who was allegedly beaten to death in the county at about 9 p.m. last night.

    Investigators are not releasing how the victim, Derald “Pete” Connell, was killed; only that he was the victim of an assault.

    Investigator Scott Mills said the assault took place off Highway 6 East near Oxford.

    “We have no motives at this time,” Mills said. “Although, we do have some suspects.” (April 2, 2010)
