Murder weapon still missing

Affidavit: Jones tells police he would be killed if he talked

(Continued)

DUNCAN —

That’s when Shoemake was able to find out from Jones what type of gun was used.
Police are still looking for a .22 caliber revolver. Jones told officers he hid the gun inside the cold air induction of his 2003 black Ford Focus, but when officers searched the car they did not find the murder weapon.
What they did find in their search was a .22 caliber bullet located under the cold air inductor, a large amount of .22 LR and .22 short bullets inside the main fuse box and one spent .22 LR case under the back seat cushion. Also a 12 gauge disassembled shotgun was found in the trunk of the car under the spare tire, all listed in the affidavit.
Officers visited the individual they believed might have had the gun, who gave them permission to search his residence. No gun was located. The man told Sgt. Danny Foraker that all three boys had come to his house, but he did not want to get involved.
 
The affidavit noted that the boys left the residence and did not leave a gun there.
