LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock Police are looking at the bottom of a playa lake for more evidence in the recent murder of 28-year-old Marqus Lewis. Wednesday morning, dive teams searched the playa lake at Ribble Park on 58th and Avenue U.

The search lasted about two hours and they pulled out what looked like a cell phone. They kept it as evidence, but police could not tell us exactly what it was. "We may come back based on whatever they find with the article that we found; if they find it's a pretty good lead, we may come back and do some more searches later," says Lt. Matt McGinnis with the Lubbock Fire Department Dive Team.

Meanwhile, a suspect in this case remains behind bars in New Mexico. Charity Wilcots, 21, surrendered to authorities in Albuquerque on Monday morning. Police now say that two juveniles may also be involved. Lewis was shot multiple times in his home near Erskine and North Frankford on May 23rd.

Investigators have already taken a statement from one of the boys, but the other is still wanted for questioning. Because they are underage, police have not released their names.

One suspect is described as a black male, around 15-years-old, 5'3" 120 lbs, braided hair, with several aliases. He is considered armed and dangerous and might be wearing bullet proof vest. He has outstanding warrants.

If you have any information about this case, you are urged to call Crime Line at 741-1000.
