Reward offered for information connected to recent murder

The search for clues and information into who might have killed a Warren County man last week continues.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said Sunday investigators are “working around the clock following leads” into who shot and killed Gary Michael McAlpin, 50, known as “Cowboy.”

McAlpin’s body was found in his Jeff Davis Road home Thursday.

According to Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace, a sheriff’s deputy on patrol in the Jeff Davis Road area was flagged down just after 5 p.m. Thursday by individuals who said they found an acquaintance of theirs who appeared to have been shot.

Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey declared McAlpin dead at the scene and said an autopsy has been ordered.

“We don’t have a lot of details at this time,” Pace said Thursday evening. “It appears at this time (it is) one individual in the home by himself. It’s unclear at this time if the shots were fired in the home or outside the home,” Pace said. “That’s what we’re trying to sort out at this time.”

Pace said Sunday that CrimeStoppers has offered $2,500 reward for information that leads to an arrest. “We don’t need your name, just your information,” Pace said.

Anyone with information should call CrimeStoppers at 601-355-8477.
