The Memphis Police Department (MPD) announced Sunday two men have been named “Persons of Interest” in the Young Dolph murder case.
Police said Devin Burns, 26, is approximately 5’6″, and 135 lbs.
Burns has active warrants for aggravated assault and theft of property between $10,000 and $60,000, although police say they are unrelated to the Young Dolph case.
Police also named Joshua Taylor, 26, as a person of interest. He is described as 6’6″ and 180 lbs.
Memphis Police are looking for information into the location of both men or any additional information into Young Dolph’s murder.
Why Was Young Dolph Murder Suspect Released?
According to reports, no official statement has been given with regards to the release of the Young Dolph murder suspect but Shundale Barnett was believed to be mistakenly released from an Indiana jail when he was supposed to be extradited to Memphis.
According to the report, officials in Indiana say authorities in Shelby County, Tenn. told them to release Barnett. He was then supposed to be extradited to Memphis by the U.S. Marshals Service.
Instead, in an apparent miscommunication, he was let go free on Jan. 21. He is now reportedly a wanted man.
The whereabouts of Shundale Barnett, the third suspect in the killing of Young Dolph, are currently unknown, according to a report released by Memphis’ News 3 on Feb. 17.
Barnett, who is being charged with accessory after the fact, criminal attempt to commit first-degree murder, and theft of property in connection to Dolph’s slaying, was originally arrested alongside the man authorities believe to be one of the two shooters, Justin Johnson, 23, in Indiana on Jan. 11.
Both men were being held in the Clay County Jail by the Indiana State Police.
