Lubbock Police search for new evidence in Braddock murder

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Tuesday afternoon Lubbock Police took the roommate of a murdered man back to the scene in handcuffs while they searched for new evidence, putting them one step closer to solving the murder.

On Oct. 9 Kevin Lee Braddock, 49, was found beaten to death on his couch inside his home at the Elm Grove Mobile Home Park off of Research Boulevard and Highway 114.

Days later his 18-year-old roommate Bradley Crawford was arrested on unrelated charges. In the arrest warrant, a mutual friend told police Crawford and Braddock had gotten into an argument the day before Braddock was found dead. It also said Crawford had talked about killing people in the past.

Tuesday about a dozen detectives were seen searching the field right across the street from the mobile home park. Still in the custody of the Lubbock County Detention Center, Crawford was handcuffed and in a blue jumpsuit as detectives searched the field around him.

A person inside the mobile home park told KCBD they saw detectives carrying two items wrapped in brown evidence bags. The first was about a foot in a half long. The other was about the size of a baseball bat, three to four feet in length.

Police would not comment on whether any of the items were the murder weapons, but did say they were searching for evidence linked to the murder.

Crawford remains behind bars on unrelated charges. No one has been charged or arrested in the murder of Braddock.
