    I read a newspaper article on this and another cold homicide. They mention that Lewis Glenn, was shot with a .45 caliber firearm. Also, there was some shell casings. I wonder anyone knows why he was at the church. I find it interesting that his funeral service was held at another church.

    Also, we have no information on what he did for a living. He is survived by three sons, but no mention of a wife or ex-wife. It makes me wonder if someone connected to his ex-wife or her family.
