A Silver Alert issued for a missing 42-year old man from Halifax County has turned into a murder investigation.
Upon finding his body, investigators discovered Ausby had been shot in the upper torso with what appears to be a small caliber weapon. Halifax County Sheriff Wes Tripp confirmed a murder investigation is underway.
He believes someone in his community should have information on what happened to his father.
"I feel that Weldon is too small for someone not to know or not to have seen nothing," he said. "I want to know how the heck everybody knows everything else what's going on around here, but nobody knows what happened to my daddy."
No arrest has been made, but police in Weldon say they are following leads in the case.
