The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in solving the 2012 murder of Ashton Randle.
On or about May 20th, 2012, the body of 23-year-old Ashton Randle of Logansport, Louisiana was located in a wooded area off of FM 139 in Shelbyville, Texas. It was discovered that Mr. Randle had been fatally shot.
The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office initiated a homicide investigation and the investigation has continued over the past 7 years with various leads and collection of additional evidence. Despite the passing of 7 years’ time, the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office has not forgotten about Mr. Randle and his untimely death, nor did his family and friends.
Although the homicide of Mr. Randle is seven years old, there is no statute of limitations for homicide in the State of Texas. The pursuit for justice continues.
The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is asking for any information that will lead them to further evidence in this case and/or further information that will assist in securing a conviction for the suspect(s) involved, so justice can be served and bring the much-needed closure for Mr. Randle’s family.
