Last Saturday, authorities discovered Barbara Exum, a 56-year-old Anniston woman, shot to death in a small side room of the Papa John’s at 1225 Snow St. in Oxford.
Oxford police have spent the past week searching for the suspect, whom police Chief Bill Partridge described as a short-haired black man with a skinny build and a deep, raspy voice.
Until now, that was the only description investigators had publicly provided.
Lt. L.G. Owens said a sketch artist from the Hoover Police Department was able this week to draw a sketch of the suspect based on witness descriptions.
A poster from the police department shows a sketch of a young black man wearing a bandana to partially cover his face.
Police said the man is 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches in height with wide shoulders. The poster said the man carries a black semi-automatic pistol as a weapon.
Anyone with information on the suspect should contact Oxford police at 256-831-3121.
