Published Jan 14, 2010Following Jay Reatard's tragic death yesterday (January 12), reports have begun trickling in that his death is being investigated as a homicide. As previously reported, Reatard was found dead at around 3:30 a.m. in his Memphis home.
Pitchfork now points to a Memphis Fox affiliate that has supposedly reported that police are searching for a possible suspect and asking for help from the public. However, the Fox story has now been removed.
