Arrest Made In Southaven Murder


(Southaven, MS) Police in Southaven, Ms have made an arrest in a Tuesday night murder.

Police found 72-year-old Johnny Moore dead in his home.

There was a puddle of blood in Moore’s car port and his vehicle was missing.

Karl Justin Walls was arrested Thursday morning in Yalobusha County, MS when someone saw Moore’s vehicle after hearing a description of it on the news.

Walls, who lives in the same neighborhood where the murder took place, is charged with capital murder and aggravated robbery.

Amber Foshee grew up next door and got the shocking news Tuesday night, ”I got a phone call from my father, asking me when was the last time I seen Mr. Moore.”

Foshee said she believes Moore could have been dead as long as three days before police found him, ”Sunday morning I came home and my brother had said something and was like, it was weird, Mr. Moore wasn’t home all night and we noticed a lamp in his living room was turned over.”
