ABILENE, TX (KCBD) -

Hockley County Sheriff Ray Scifres confirms two people are being investigated in connection with the murder of a Levelland woman. Jeannie Kaitlyn-Noel Quinn's body was found on private property in Abilene on April 17, 2018, two days after she went missing from Levelland.

When authorities found her body, they deemed her death to be suspicious.

The Abilene Police Department seized two phones in mid-April as part of the murder investigation.

Officials say Quinn was last seen with her boyfriend in Abilene just two days before her body was found. Her boyfriend has not been identified at this time.

According to officials, Quinn's boyfriend said they left from Levelland on April 14, drove to Brady to visit some friends, then stayed in Brownwood. They then went to Abilene where they got into an argument. The boyfriend said she left in his truck and he waited for her for about an hour before calling her several times and leaving her a voicemail.

According to KTXS, he told detectives with the Abilene Police that he continued calling Quinn for days after she disappeared, but that she never answered him, so he stopped trying to contact her.

Detectives searched his phone during the interview and found several calls he made to another person on the day of the argument.

The boyfriend says that person picked him up as he was walking from Abilene to Snyder and drove him back to Levelland. He told police he and the same person borrowed a friend's car on April 16 to look for Quinn, but they didn't find her, so they drove back to Levelland.

Detectives believe the data from Quinn's boyfriend's phone will help in the investigation. 

The boyfriend and his friend have not been identified because no charges have been issued against them.
