MCSO continues probe of murder

37-year-old Kingman man shot multiple times

KINGMAN - The Mohave County Sheriff's Office believes a Kingman man may have been lured to a location before being shot multiple times with a high-powered rifle.

The night of April 12 deputies responded to a shooting incident off of Old Trails Road near the second black railroad bridge where they found the body of Christopher J. Gillespie, 37, of Kingman.

Old Trails Road runs parallel with a section of historic Route 66 that splits off of Andy Devine Avenue and runs past the County Administration Building.

Investigators believe that Gillespie was transported to the location where he was possibly ambushed by unknown subject(s) and shot four times by a high-powered rifle.

Two people are being interviewed as investigative leads in the case, Norman Corley, 35, and Dana Schick, 23, both of Kingman.

Schick, Gillespie's girlfriend, reported the incident to law enforcement. Corley transported her into town where she notified Kingman Police Department, who contacted MCSO.

Schick and Corley are not considered suspects at this time, MCSO spokeswoman Trish Carter said.

MCSO continues to investigate the situation.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Steve Parker at Mohave County Sheriff's Office at (928) 753-0753 or Mohave Silent Witness (928) 753-1234.
