DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -Three people face charges after law enforcement officers found the decomposed body of a man in Holmes County. Raul Guillen, 51, had been missing since July 4.

Sheriff John Tate said investigators had located the site a day earlier but heavy rain hampered recovery efforts. They returned on Tuesday and recovered Gullien's body. He had been shot.

Charged with an open count murder is 35-year old William Shane Parker of Dothan. He has been in custody since Friday.

Parker's girlfriend, 23-year old Lauren Wambles, is charged as a principal to murder and 43-year old Jeremy Peters as an accessory to murder and corpse abuse.

Parker is believed to have shot Guillen at Peters' home near Graceville in early July. His body was found a short distance from there.

“It’s all about drugs and money,” is how Tate characterized the suspected motive.

Sheriffs Lou Roberts of Jackson County and Donald Valenza of Houston County joined Tate for a news conference Wednesday, with all touting teamwork between their agencies. Special recognition was given to Investigators Ricky Herring and Cherree Edwards.
