Update: Homicide Victim's Family Speaks Out

Update (November 6): 

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. - A Jacksonville family is in mourning as their loved one's killer is still on the loose. 

Christon Anderson, 25, or as his siblings called him "Scooby" was found shot to death south of the city limits early Sunday morning.

"We're still in pain from that we're still trying to get over that and for this to happen, it's hard, it's real hard," said Tamar Terry, Christon's sister. "And the holidays and everything. I don't know how we're supposed to get through it." 

Pulaski County detectives have released no suspect information at this time.
