Chad Ray Thompson
The cousin of a man found slain on the banks of the Collins River in November has been charged with his murder. The alleged killer, Chad Ray Thompson, 33, was picked up Monday morning by officers at his apartment on Red Road, a residence located directly across the street from McMinnville Police Department and the same road off which the body of the victim, Tracy A. Martin, 38, was found just before Thanksgiving last year. Thompson, who has a lengthy criminal record dating back to 1995, is being held under $5 million bond at Warren County Jail.
