Investigators say they have developed leads in the case of the shooting death of a local business owner on Monday evening.
Capt. Matt Rice with the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday afternoon said investigators are ready to call the shooting of Larry W. Billings a homicide and now have suspects and motives in their sights.
Billings, 60, was the longtime owner of Conway Roller Rink. He was found dead in his home by a teenage son around 7 p.m. Monday.
Autopsy results on Wednesday indicated Billings died as the result of a single gunshot wound to the head.
A blue, 2007 Nissan Titan belonging to Billings and the weapon used to commit the crime are still missing.
Investigators have been mum on the details of the type or caliber of firearm used to commit the crime.
On Thursday, Rice declined to give details on the possible suspects or motives, but said interviews are ongoing.
“We’ve been talking to a lot of people and we are going to continue to talk to a lot of people,” Rice said.
Anyone with information on the Nissan Titan, license plate number 631 MEM, is asked to contact the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office at 501-450-4914.
