Savannah man found dead on church lawn

Posted: Updated:

Neighbors are nervous after 26-year old Audie Walker Murphy was found dead on the lawn of Covenant Holiness Church on East Duffy Street and Atlantic Avenue.

WTOC interviewed a college student who called 911 after Murphy's body was found about 8 a.m. Saturday. He lives near the church and did not want to be identified because metro police haven't solved the crime.

"I think I'm still waiting for it to hit me and to sink in the impact of what I witnessed," he said.

Neighbors say they heard gunshots about 4 a.m. Saturday morning.

Police spokesman Julian Miller said officers were called to the area.

Homicide detectives are asking anyone who knows anything about Murphy's death to call Crimestoppers at 912-234-2020.
