GBI crime scene technicians sifted certain areas of the dirt from the hole as they searched for evidence.”We called the GBI and county road department last week and they agreed to help us with this investigation,” said sheriff Thomas. “We should be able to conclude this part of the investigation by the end of the day.”Sheriff Thomas noted that it is still an open investigation and more information will be revealed when possible. Christopher Lee Chambley, 29, of Lamar County was shot and killed outside his vehicle on Reid Road June 5, 2010.
