LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock woman is named as a "person of interest" in this weekend's homicide, and police need your help.

They are looking for 21-year-old Charity Wilcots. She is wanted on a forgery charge, but also for questioning. Lubbock Police have located her vehicle, but she has not been taken into custody.

28-year-old Marqus Lewis was found shot many times in his home Sunday morning. While there are still many questions, police believe that Wilcots may be able to clear up a few things.

Flowers now stand in Marqus Lewis' yard, as a reminder of the life he lived. Lubbock Police officers found Lewis dead with several gunshot wounds, in his home in the 5600 block of Grinnell Street Sunday morning.

Investigators also found more than 40 marijuana plants inside the home. Lewis lived with a male roommate, who has already spoken to police. "We're not looking for him to develop more information at this point right now, there is only one person at this point we are considering by name as a person of interest and that's Charity Wilcots," says Captain Greg Stevens of the Lubbock Police Department.

21-year-old Charity Wilcots is wanted for an unrelated warrant, but officers believe she has information about Lewis' death. "Our detectives would like to speak with her in connection with that homicide as well as the possibility of any acquaintances of hers that may have information about it," says Stevens.

Wilcots was last known to live at 6405 24th Street, and police believe her most recent job was at Lin's Buffet.

"I don't know the extent of her relationship with the victim, what we do know is that she had contact with him earlier in the day on the day of the homicide," says Stevens.

If you have any information that could help police, you are urged to call Crime Line at 741-1000.
