WKYT's Tamara Evans has more.

Although police have new evidence in this case, they still have plenty of questions.

Overnight, Jim Duckett's stolen Dodge Ram pickup truck was found.

It had been taken from his Shelbyville home.

Police discovered the 43 year old Duckett dead in his home on Monday.

A relative found his body after church members were worried when he didn't make it to church over the weekend.

Detectives have been combing the area for evidence and looking for clues as to what happened and who killed Duckett.

There are still no suspects in the case.

The truck they recovered Tuesday morning is now part of their murder investigation.

Duckett was a retired military veteran who was known to be an artist and chef.

He often cooked for his fellow church members.

Friends say they don't know who would ever want to hurt him.

Police say they haven't ruled anyone out just yet in the murder investigation.

Anyone with information on Duckett's murder is asked to contact the Kentucky State Police in Frankfort.
