Anderson County sheriff's officers said Monday more clues were sought in the slaying of Deputy Shelby Green. He was found early Thursday, slumped against the open door of his unmarked patrol car, by a fellow deputy. Green had been shot in the chest. Green, 39, was on his way to back up another officer on a domestic disturbance call when he noticed a suspicious vehicle at a Bradford area store where he thought a burglary might be taking place, an investigator said earlier. Chief Deputy Mike Link said Green's weapon was found about 10 to 12 feet below Catfish Creek Bridge on Farm-to-Market Road 2961, along the waterway. Authorities have said Green's weapon had been fired multiple times. Sheriff's investigator Chuck Franklin said authorities still have no suspects in the case. "The investigation is ongoing," he told the Palestine Herald-Press in Tuesday's online edition, "and we're continuing to beat the bushes to find out who might have been involved in this." Minutes before his death, Green radioed that he was involved in a pursuit between Bradford and Cayuga. The veteran lawman described the vehicle as a silver-colored pickup, possibly a Chevrolet. Green's vehicle, recovered in the remote area of northwestern Anderson County on the northern boundary of Gus A. Engeling Wildlife Management Area, had six bullet holes through the front windshield and another through the driver's side window. Franklin said the recovered bullets will be sent to the Texas Department of Public Safety laboratory in Tyler for analysis. Green, who began as a part-time dispatcher with the sheriff's department, was a 10-year veteran. He received an award last year from the Drug Enforcement Administration.
