The Levy County Sheriff’s
Office is seeking the public’s assistance with the investigation of a murder
which occurred on July 5, 2014.  At
approximately 10:20 P.M. LCSO received  a
911 call reporting a suspicious vehicle and possible shooting.  Deputies and Williston Police Officers responded
to area near the intersection of NE
218th Avenue and NE 35th Street, east of
Williston.   

 

The responding deputies
found a white Ford Crown Victoria
parked on the roadway.  The deputies
