JONESBORO — The man found fatally shot early Wednesday in his southwest Jonesboro home has been identified as Johnathan Felipe, 21.
The Jonesboro Police Department was dispatched shortly after midnight Wednesday to the 700 block of West Strawn Avenue in response to a shooting, reports show. When officers arrived a 20-year-old female resident of the home told them that Felipe was shot.
In the incident report released by JPD, the department notes that he was shot under “unknown circumstances.” Felipe was dead “with a gunshot wound,” it disclosed on Facebook.
Public information specialist Sally Smith said no arrest had been made as of Wednesday afternoon.
“Investigators are still working on this case. If anyone has information regarding this crime, please contact the Jonesboro Police Department at 870-935-5657,” Smith said.
The murder of Felipe is the second homicide probed this year by JPD.
Investigators concluded that Jerry Lamb, 65, murdered his wife Deborah Lamb, 63, on March 24 before fatally shooting himself with a shotgun, according to an updated incident report. Smith said Wednesday that the Criminal Investigation Division wrapped up its inquiry this week.
“Upon looking at all the evidence, it was determined that the male subject shot the female while she was in the kitchen. He then walks into the bedroom/office and puts the shotgun on the floor and shoots himself,” an updated incident report read.
A family member found them with gunshot wounds to the head on March 31 in their home in the 3200 block of Turtle Creek Road, the incident report read. The man visited the home at the request of another family member who couldn’t reach the Lambs by phone.
The complainant entered the residence through the garage and told investigators that he never saw the two of them fight.
“He then told me that (Deborah Lamb) had just discovered that she may have had an information breach from her computer server that caused some of her client’s personal information to be leaked,” Detective Shane Fox wrote. “(The) complainant advised that this situation had put more undue stress on the family.”
After gathering forensic evidence from the scene and a review of their cellphones, JPD realized that the couple was not robbed or had any involvement from outside parties.
“There was also nothing in the phones that would indicate that there had been any problems within the family or any possible motive of the crime,” Fox wrote.
