Forensic results pending in Causey death

Freedom Newspapers

PORTALES — Authorities said Tuesday they are still waiting on forensics results and have not filed any charges in connection with the homicide of Causey rancher Jimmy “Bo” Chunn.

A warrant obtained in district court showed Donald Taylor, 24, of Rogers, was identified as a person of interest in Chunn’s death. Taylor has been in the Roosevelt County Detention Center on an unspecified probation violation since July 8, the same day Chunn’s body was discovered. Officials believe Chunn was shot in the head.

Officials have said Taylor’s parole violation was not related to the Chunn case and neither Taylor nor anyone else has been charged with Chunn’s death.

Court documents said search warrants executed on Taylor’s vehicle and residence have produced clothes that tested positive for blood. Authorities believe Taylor was in the vicinity of Chunn’s home about the time of his death.
