Tennessee police said they are working tirelessly to bring the party, or parties, responsible for the murder of a U.S. soldier, who was tied up and shot to his death in his Lenoir City home last week.

Thirty-five-year-old Specialist Jacob Bishop of Tennessee Army National Guard, who had just returned from a year-long deployment in Poland, was found dead last Tuesday morning, on Oct.1  by his mother. The father of two had been physically bound and shot multiple times, according to investigators with the Loudon County Sheriff’s Office.

His killer has still not been identified. 

Investigators do not believe this was a random killing and said the public is not at risk, though they caution that the suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.

They are looking for a white SUV that witnesses said had been in the area several days before the murder and seen leaving the area the day of Bishop’s death.

“We have been pursuing multiple leads, spending countless hours around the clock, in our search for clues that we need to lead us to the party or parties responsible for the tragic killing of another,” said Chief Deputy Jimmy Davis.
