The body of a young man found in Campbellton has been identified. He is 19-year-old Andre Leon Sawyer.
He was originally from Montgomery, but Jackson County Sheriff John McDaniel says Sawyer had been living in Dothan for the past several months.
Sawyers’ body was found in a ditch on Bowden Hill Road in Campbellton Tuesday morning. He had been shot to death.
Sheriff McDaniel says Sawyer was apparently killed at the scene and there had been a report of shots fired in the area around 11:30 p.m. Monday night.
The sheriff also says, because of the victim's ties to Alabama, the focus of the investigation has shifted to this area.
Evidence was recovered at the scene of the crime and investigators in two states are running down leads in the case, but the killer is still at large.
