Information gathered at the scene identified a male subject, who was not on location, who was alleged to have knowledge of the circumstances leading to the death of McNally.  Officers located the subject, Robert Boyler, at a residence in the 1300 block of N. Edwards.  He was detained for detectives and later arrested for an outstanding warrant from Camp County for Criminal Nonsupport/Child Support.

An autopsy was performed Sunday (June 26) at the Dallas Southwestern Institute of Forensics.  The preliminary report indicated that McNally's death is considered a homicide.  MPPD investigators worked the case through the weekend and all week resulting in the charge of murder again Boyler.  The investigation continues.
