Police Press Release for October 11

IMG_5341Paris Police responded to Paris Regional Medical Center just after midnight last night in reference to an Aggravated assault. Paris Police met with a 58 year old female who advised that her boyfriend had cut her with a knife. Officers observed that the victim had a gash on her forearm consistent with being cut with a knife. The victim was treated and released from the hospital. The incident is under investigation.

Investigators are continuing the investigation of the quadruple homicide. Paris Police have received a few Crime Stoppers tips and are following up on all investigative leads. Police are still requesting information to help solve this crime. Again, if you have any information that may lead to the arrest and or indictment of the person or persons responsible, you are urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 903-785-tips (8477). According to Cheif Hundley, “We have been receiving some information that have provide leads for us to track down. We still welcome any information our citizens may provide as we continue the investigation.

On October 10, 2013, Paris Police arrested 10 persons, mostly on misdemeanor charges, while responding to 99 calls for service.

Paris police report ‘a few clues’ in investigation of quadruple homicide

Police have received “a few” tips to Crime Stoppers in connection with the quadruple homicide Wednesday night in the city, Police Chief Bob Hundley said today.

“Investigators are continuing the investigation. Paris police have received a few Crime Stoppers tips and are following up on all investigative leads,” Hundley said. “Again, anyone with information that may lead to the arrest and/or indictment of the person or persons responsible is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 903.785.TIPS (8477).”

The person providing the information will not have to testify in court.

Hundley and Capt. Danny Huff, the supervisor of the investigation, fielded questions from local, regional and national media on Thursday afternoon.

“First and foremost, we’d like to express our condolences and prayers for the families of the slain young men,” Hundley said.

“This was a pretty violent situation. I’ve been a police officer here for 39 years, and I can’t recall any multiple homicides like this that we’ve had here in Paris. It’s not indicative of our city. We’ve pretty much pulled out all the resources that we can to solve this crime.”

According to police department spokesman Curtis Garrett, police received 9-1-1 calls from two separate female callers about 11:23 p.m. on Wednesday — one to report someone bleeding and one to report a shooting.

Upon police arrival, the bodies of four young men were found in a front room of a house in the 400 block of NE 6th Street from apparent gunshot wounds.

Police did not specify at the press conference if they had a suspect or if this was a robbery or execution-style killing, but did say that the act did not appear to be random.

Hundley — after cautioning the media that the early status of the investigation would limit what they could talk about — introduced Huff, who said the crime happened “shortly before the first officers arrived on the scene.”

Pictures on Facebook indicated one of the victims had gang signs, but Huff said: “There’s no reason for us to believe that right now. I have not seen those pictures. We’re not investigating it as a gang incident, nor are we willing to rule that out.”

Media: “What about drugs?”

Huff: “We’re not going to speculate on that right now, sorry. We’re looking at all possibilities. We’re not targeting any one individual or group of individuals. We are going where the evidence takes us.”

Media: “Should the public be concerned?”

Huff: “I don’t have any reason right now to think that the public should be concerned. The only thing that I will say to ease the concern of the community is that this does not appear to be a random act of violence that you would normally think the community would become very concerned about.”
