Elderly man shot and killed, Lawrence County AL

WAFF 48 News has confirmed the Lawrence County Sheriff's Department believes an elderly man found dead was murdered.

74-year old James Floyd Letson was shot to death. His body was found Sunday afternoon at his home on Highway 33 in Courtland.

Family members tell us they started calling Letson during Saturday night's storms but, he never answered. We're told his grandson went to check on him Sunday and that's when they discovered his body.

His daughter Diana Getty says she can't understand why anyone would do this. "Why would anyone want to kill my father? He's a nice guy. He's never did nothing to nobody. He's always tried to help anybody anyway he can."
