[AL] Slain at home, Investigator Lowe had a pending domestic violence charge


EXCERPTS FROM LAST WEEKS ARTICLES:

A former Marshall County Sheriff's deputy and District Attorney's Office investigator was shot and killed in his backyard on Jolley Drive in Horton, that's just outside Albertville. ABI has taken over the investigation. A number of people are being questioned, but no one has been charged at this point. Just before 11p.m. Tuesday night, Marshall County sheriff's deputies responded to a call of a domestic incident at a home on Jolley Drive in the Horton community. Officers arrived to find the body of 51-year-old David Lowe in the back yard of the home, with multiple gunshot wounds... WAFF 48 News has uncovered nine pages of court documents, including this arrest report dated for March 28, 2008 in which David Lowe was charged with domestic violence... Marshall County Sheriff Scott Walls said the Alabama Bureau of Investigations was brought in to handle the case due to the fact Lowe was a retired law enforcement official and that there was a "close relationship between local investigators and Mr. Lowe"... "David was a member of the law enforcement community, and that's why we requested ABI... We wanted an independent investigation and a thorough investigation, and we feel confident that it will be completed in time to go to the next grand jury"... Local judges and the staffers from the Marshall County district attorney’s office had recused themselves from the case... [ABI spokesman Curtis] Summerville said he does not know who called authorities to the Lowe residence, but efforts have been made to get the 911 tape of the call... Summerville said investigators are interviewing several witnesses including relatives, friends and neighbors. "Whether they were there" when the shooting occurred "or in proximity" of the home, "we don't know yet," he said. But he said Lowe's wife was at home when her husband was shot. Summerville said the autopsy results will be turned over to District Attorney Steve Marshall. "It will be up to him whether to file charges," he said...
