The items were taken from a shed belonging to William S. Presley, who was found shot to death in his garage at 1421 LaBelle Avenue on March 24. His murderer has not yet been found.

Presley owned a large storage shed at 1420 Blue Ridge, near his property. Sometime after his death, it was found the shed had been burglarized.
