Salt Lake police have questioned several people and have "a stack of other people" to try to determine who killed a Salt Lake man Tuesday at his central-city home.
The death was the 22nd homicide to occur in Salt Lake City this year, tying the record for the most homicides in any one year in the city's history, said Salt Lake Police Lt. Jim Bell.Jerry Leon Campbell, 46, was found in the kitchen of his home at 819 E. 800 South about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday after his roommate returned home from work. He apparently died from a single gunshot wound to the head.
Campbell is believed to have died about three or four hours before he was discovered, said Salt Lake Police Lt. Norm Thompson.
Detectives said the victim's house did not appear to have been burglarized, nor did the victim appear to have been robbed.
Officers fear that the homicide record will likely be broken this year since crimes typically tend to increase during the holiday season. Last year, two homicides were reported during the month of December.
