Second Suspect Caught in Hendrix Murder

The second suspect in the beating death of an East Texas man is in custody. The Gregg County Sheriff's Department says 27 year old Michael Kay, one of two suspects investigators say was involved in the murder of an Overton man, has been arrested.  Authorities in New York notified Gregg County that they had arrested Kay as he got off a bus in Niagra Falls.  They believe he was going to make his way across the border into Canada.

26 year old Aaron Higginbotham has already been arraigned and charged with murder in the case. Police say the pair killed 18 year old Michael Hendrix, then dumped his body in the Sabine river.
