New Details Emerge Relating to the Murder of Lynda Slocum

The home where Lynda Slocum was found murdered in December.

Lynchburg, VA - There is new information about the murder of Lynda Slocum, 86, who was killed inside her Ravenwood Drive home back in December.

Lynchburg Police are calling Scott C. Miles a person of interest, but they also made it clear that he is not considered a suspect at this time.

Miles is the estranged son-in-law of Lynda Slocum.

Police are also saying two search warrants were executed in residences in Henrico and Hopewell, Virginia.

According to Lynchburg Police, one of the residences was on Castlebar Court in Henrico County.

Miles is being considered a person of interest because of some inconsistencies in a statement he gave to detectives.

Police say, Miles told a Lynchburg Police Detective that he hadn't been to Lynchburg in a month.

However, police say cell phone records show that his cell phone was in Lynchburg the night before Slocum's body was found.

Lynchbug police say they searched the Hopewell residence a second time last week, because they obtained surveillance video that showed Miles in a Lynchburg convenience store, the night before Slocum's body was found.

With new information, police were able to obtain another warrant to re-search the residence.
