The reports quote police and Murphy as saying 49-year old John Krueger is the person of interest.
Krueger was arrested yesterday on an unrelated felony warrant charge.
Murphy says police interviewed Krueger in reference to the homicide -- and says police have considered everyone they've interviewed to be "persons of interest."
But he says he cannot comment on whether Krueger is still a person of interest.
Murphy says officers conducted a search warrant at Krueger's home.
He says krueger has a long criminal record, and prison records show seven convictions in Jackson County since 1987.
