The Lee County Sheriff’s Office has obtained a warrant charging a suspect who had previously been identified as a “person of interest” in a homicide with murder.

Joseph Martin Kelly is wanted in connection with the death of his father, 65-year-old Randy Martin Kelly. The elder Kelly was found dead from gunshot wounds on Nov. 29 at his home at 4701 Buckhorn Road after the sheriff’s office received a call for a welfare check there.

Deputies said there have been no communications with Joseph Kelly or sightings since the murder. He is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about Kelly’s location is asked to call the Lee County Sheriff’s Office at (919) 775-5531, or the anonymous tip line at (919) 718-4577, or 911.
