CLAY COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE CONFIRMS ID OF MURDER VICTIMS
The CCSO positively identified the second homicide victim this afternoon related to the shooting incident that took the life of Raymond Kilgore and critically injured homeowners Judy and Daulphus Kilgore.
James Coody is the second person who died in the Wood Duck Road home this morning. He was just 21 years old. Coody was an acquaintance of Raymond Kilgore. His next of kin has been notified.
Judy and Daulphus Kilgore remain hospitalized but are expected to recover/survive. Detectives are still not able to speculate about the motive for the shootings, but do believe a family dispute led up to the incident. The investigation is ongoing. Wood Duck Rd remains blocked off to through traffic and will likely remain that way until detectives complete their work on scene and the victims’ bodies are removed and transported to the Jacksonville Medical Examiner’s Office later this evening.
Several media outlets have inquired about the victims’ criminal records and have requested booking photos. The two deceased victims have criminal histories and, per your requests and in accordance with FSS Ch 119, their booking photos are attached. The Kilgore parents/victims do not have criminal histories in Clay County.
The Clay County Sheriff’s Office remains on scene and continues a very broad search of the neighborhoods surrounding the crime scene. Deputies on ATV’s are spanning nearby woods including Jennings State Forrest, with the assistance of Fish & Game officials. A helicopter is still in use searching the area for the 2005 Blue Chevy Trailblazer. The suspect has not been located.
The CCSO asks that citizens remain diligent in keeping an eye out for this suspect, but warn that no one should approach him as he is armed and dangerous. Please call 911 and report his location.
The CCSO is not planning any additional media briefings at set times this evening, but will notify all media members or any major developments as they occur.
