Paris Police Chief Bob Hundley answers questions from the media at a press conference concerning the homicide held on Thursday after the bodies were discovered.

Paris Police Detectives continue the investigation into last week’s quadruple homicide of four Paris residents.

The bodies of Devante Laray Akins, 21, of Paris; Billy Charles Carey, 32, of Paris; Romello Dewain Steward, 18, of Paris; and Brijonne Rashad Woods, 24, of Paris were found inside a residence at 435 NE 6th Street by Paris police officers on Wednesday just before midnight.

“Preliminary autopsy results have confirmed that each of the four men died as a result of gunshot wounds and manner of each death as a homicide,” Paris PD spokesman Curtis Garrett said on Monday.

“Detectives have received several tips from various sources, including those received anonymously through the Crime Stoppers program.  Detectives have conducted numerous interviews with individuals who have come forward with varying degrees of information, but no arrests have been made.”

The department continues to ask for the assistance of the public and urges those who have knowledge of the person or persons responsible for these murders to contact Detective Leigh Foreman, the lead investigator on the investigation, at 903-737-4163 or to contact Crime Stoppers at 903-785-TIPS (8477) if they wish to remain anonymous.

Paris woman accused of using 9-year-old child in shoplifting scheme

About 10 a.m. on Sunday, two women were arrested after they were seen concealing merchandise in the 3000 block of Clarksville and leaving the store without paying for it, Paris police department spokesman Curtis Garrett said.

paris police carMary Ella Bailey, 49, and Iesha Y’vette Gordon, 33, both of Paris, were charged with Class B theft over $50 and under $500.

Gordon was also charged with exploitation of a child, by placing items inside a purse and giving it to her 9-year-old to carry, and also placing clothing items on the child, then leaving the store without paying for the items.

It was later found that Bailey had at least two prior convictions for theft so her charge was enhanced to a felony. Bailey was also found to have two outstanding felony warrants for her arrest.

Over the three-day weekend from Friday through Sunday, Paris police responded to 333 calls for service, resulting in 18 arrests, mostly on misdemeanor charges, Garrett said.

A 23-year-old man was treated and released at the emergency room of Paris Regional Medical Center for injuries he said he received in Culbertson Park on Friday at the hands of two men unknown to him.

The man told police he was approached in the park by the two men, and one of them hit him with a fist, knocking him out.

Witnesses said the two men then got back into a vehicle they had arrived in, and the witnesses said they heard two gunshots, Garrett said.

An investigation continues, Garrett said.
