Lynchburg Police are naming a person of interest in a murder that happened less than a week before Christmas.

Lynda Slocum was found dead in her home on December 20th.

Investigators are looking at her estranged son-in-law, Scott Miles, as a person of interest. They executed a search warrant at his home in Henrico and another in Hopewell where he is known to stay.

Miles is a person of interest only due to some inconsistencies in a statement that he gave to detectives.

Evidence collected from those search warrants is now being sent to a forensics lab.
