The warrant that was used to arrest 21-year old Sampson Blake Oguntope has revealed new details in the tragic death of Faye Gray.

The warrant states that the 89-year old was shot in the head at her home Tuesday morning. The incident occurred in the 1400 block of West Crosby. Gray's 21-year old caregiver sustained an unknown head injury. She fled the scene and ran to a neighbors house to get help. She was transported to UMC and is in stable condition as of now.

Oguntope was arrested at his apartment Tuesday night after police issued a state-wide search for him. The warrant states that while examining his apartment, police found traces of blood. The document states that there was "probable cause to believe that someone had been bleeding inside the apartment and possible transferred blood evidence from one location to this location."

The documents ended in saying that officers observed an ironing board in the small hallway of the living room and that "the pad on the ironing board had a substance on it." Sheriff Kelly Rowe said that they are waiting on lab reports to determine what that substance may be.

Oguntope is being held on a $5 million bond for the murder, in addition to $500,000 bond for the original theft charges. Sheriff Rowe says that he is confident Oguntope is the actor in the murder of Faye Gray.
