Paul Edward Lee is laid to rest

By Adam Hooper - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - By all accounts, Paul Edward Lee was considered to be a nice guy, by the family and friends that knew him best. It came as a shock to them when they heard he died as a result, of what deputies suspect, to be murder. Today, he was laid to rest. But, the investigation into his death continues.

The how, the motive, the suspect, are all unanswered questions surrounding the death of Paul Edward Lee. But, that was all put aside as friends and family paid their respects. During the funeral service Rev. George Glass offered up words of comfort to the grieving loved ones.

After the service at Johnson's Funeral Home, a processional of cars were escorted to Oak Lawn cemetery, in Welsh, where Paul Lee would finally be laid to rest.

But, the questions still remain. Who killed Paul Edward Lee, and why? Family members said his 15-year-old daughter made the gruesome discovery as she stumbled upon his lifeless body outside of his home.

"He's been a victim of a homicide. Our job is to find out what happened and how it happened. And that's what these deputies are going to try and find out, " said Calcasieu Parish Sheriff, Tony Mancuso.

Deputies said the obvious trauma to the head pointed them to suspect foul play. According to the Calcasieu Parish Coroner's office, their report should be ready by Tuesday.

This case remains under investigation. If you have any information that could help deputies, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 439-2222,  or the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's office at 491-3700.
