Lufkin Man Indicted in Cold Murder Case

An Angelina County grand jury has indicted a Lufkin man in a seven-year-old murder case.   Rodney Cearly is suspected of killing an old acquaintance.

Michael Grimes of Nacogdoches County has been missing since 1999. After a lengthy investigation, authorities closed the case but never found Grimes' body. A crime investigation team re-opened the unsolved mystery and now, Cearly is suspected of being part of the disappearance.

Authorities still don't have a body or murder weapon.
