Update on Slama Murder Investigation

The search is still on for whoever shot and killed a Joplin man in his own home Wednesday. Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland tells News Talk KZRG where the investigation stands.

"We collected a lot of physical evidence at the scene. If and when we get a suspect, I'm certain that evidence will prove what happened one way or another. People are concerned because this could've happened to anyone. You'd like to think you're safe in your own home... it's shocking to anyone."

58-year-old Jeffrey Slama was shot in the back by an intruder in his home. Slama could be heard on a 911 call pleading for his life before he was shot.
