According to the Athens County Sheriff’s Office, deputies received a call on May 23 about a body found outside the residence at 15010 Fossil Rock Road. Deputies arrived on scene and discovered Everett dead from a single gunshot wound to the head.

Athens County Sheriff Rodney Smith says in a news release that detectives were able to quickly identify Doczi as a suspect and bring him in for questioning.
