The Ozark Police Department says that they are awaiting lab results from The Missouri Crime Lab in the death of Ozark Dodge co-owner Rufus Church.

Church was found dead in a service bay by a coworker about 6:30 a.m.with a gunshot wound to the chest on March 23rd.

Ozark police chief Lyle Hodges says," the case is ongoing and they have not ruled out if it was a suicide or homicide," adding "that the public shouldn't be worried that there is a killer on the loose."
Hodges says that a meeting with investigators with The Missouri Highway Patrol is in the works so that the agencies can compare notes in Church's death.
