Kentucky State Police Post 9 in Pikeville has released the name and photos of a man for whom an arrest warrant has been issued in connection with the suspected murder of a Volga man Monday.

The warrant was issued for Walter Lee Curtis, of Flat Gap. 

KSP is asking anyone with information on Curtis’ whereabouts to contact Post 9 at, (606) 433-7711. Callers may remain anonymous.

The suspected murder case stems from the shooting of Mike Jones, 58, of Flat Gap, Monday evening. Jones was pronounced deceased at the scene, and his body has been taken to the medical examiner’s office for autopsy and to confirm the cause of death.  

The case remains under investigation by KSP Det. Kevin Newsome.
