Family members sent us pictures of Michael Loudermilk. His death was ruled a homicide two months ago, likely by strangulation, according to the District Attorney's Office.
Family members say Loudermilk was living with the suspect, Raymond Steed, at the time of his death in late February.
The Monroe County DA's office says that bit of information led them in the right direction.
"I don't want to comment too much on the investigation, but we have noticed certain statements made by Mr. Steed in connection with the investigation," said Sandra Doorley, District Attorney.
That's all Doorley wanted to release at this time. But we did receive statements from members of Michael Loudermilk's family, saying: "Michael fell into a relationship with a very unscrupulous person, Mr. Raymond Steed. It ultimately led to Michael's undoing. It is a shock. Be careful whom you associate with."
Raymond Steed is charged with second-degree murder. He pleaded not guilty Wednesday.
Steed is already in jail on a separate sentence for a drug possession charge. If convicted of this murder, he faces up to 25 years to life in state prison.
