Investigators with the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office say a man who committed suicide recently was a person of interest in an Elk City murder investigation.

According to a news release, 47-year-old Billy Jack Jones died at his residence at Hidden Springs in Elk City on Oct. 8th. The sheriff’s office says Jones was interviewed several times but was unable to complete a polygraph examination because of a medical problem.

Jones, along with several others, had been interviewed by investigators in connection with the death of LeAnna Bailey, who is believed to have died on the night of Sept. 14th or the morning of Sept. 15th.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing. (Lewiston Tribune)
