“To confirm the exact motive is kind of hard at this stage, where we are still seeking a suspect. We know that there have been issues with this individual and some other folks, so we are working from that avenue trying to identify could persons have been involved from there.”

But the victim’s sister, Tiffany Winn said people were after her brother.
