KILLEEN (January 3, 2011)—A man whom Killeen police identified last month as a “person of interest” in the murder of a local woman whose body was found this summer in her home has been identified, questioned and evidently cleared of any connection to the killing.

A neighbor found Candance Lee Boley, 36, just before midnight on July 11, 2011, bleeding and lying face down on the floor of her home in the 1000 block of Parmer in Killeen.

The neighbor told officers he heard gunshots about an hour earlier and later saw animals from the residence outside the house, police said.

He went to the house, found the front door was open and then discovered the woman’s body lying on the floor inside.’

In early December police released a sketch of a man called “Dan,” who investigators said might have information pertinent to the case, and asked for the public’s help in identifying him.

In a brief statement issued Tuesday, police said, “’Dan’ has been identified and detectives have spoken with him regarding this case. This subject is no longer a person of interest in relation to the Boley murder.”
