The murder investigation of Vance Payne continues in Shelby County. Investigators tell us they do not have a suspect. And they continue to deal with a lot of rumors about the case.   Payne was found with fatal injuries three weeks ago in his Center home. Center's police chief, Walter Shofner, says people ask him about rumors they've heard about the investigation almost every day. The chief is not confirming or denying a murder weapon has been found.

Meanwhile, the reward account for information has grown to over $20, 000 plus another $1,000 being offered by crime stoppers. Vance Payne died from blunt trauma to the head.
