New Leads in Houston County Murder Case

Man is being held in the Houston County Jail and charged with receiving stolen property from murder victim’s home.

The body of the 69-year-old Joe Tex Johnson man was found in his home on Courtney Lane, April 15th.

Sheriff Andy Hughes says the home was burglarized earlier this month and a rifle, a hand-gun were stolen along with some other items.

The sheriff says the rifle was apparently pawned by David Waller and investigators found the hand-gun in his truck.

Both weapons have been sent to a state crime lab for testing.

Crimestoppers is still offering a $1,000 reward for information in the case. The number to call in Dothan is 793-7000.
