11 Year-Old Murder Surfaces in Hockley County

NewsChannel 11 learned that a body may be buried somewhere on CRP land in South Hockley County. We have confirmed with an investigator that they are looking into a murder from 11 years-ago they knew nothing about until last week.

Law enforcement sources tell NewsChannel 11 that the Sheriff's Department received information, possibly a confession, from a 26 to 27-year-old man, who said when he was 16-year-old, allegedly killed a Levelland drifter or homeless man, named "Roy".

NewsChannel 11 talked with the Hockley County District Attorney's Office, they did mention something about a juvenile. We have not been able to confirm the suspect's name.

Sources tell us investigators will begin digging as early as Tuesday, or sometime this week. This is all the information NewsChannel 11 has gathered at this moment. We will continue to follow this story and bring you more as it becomes available to us.
