MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) UPDATE (1/5/2021): Sexual torture charge now added in Mobile County murder case

An update now to one of the most grotesque crime scenes investigators say they've come across in decades working in law enforcement. Mobile County Deputies arrested Jeffrey Blackston overnight for the murder of Troy Barnhill in Wilmer this past weekend. Investigators say Blackston, 26, savagely beat Barnhill, 27, to death before daybreak Sunday.

Captain Paul Burch says the two had lived together and Blackston accused Barnhill of stealing his clothes. Inside the home, Burch says, every drawer had been opened and pockets turned out, evidence Blackston was searching for something. Burch says there were also signs of Blackston's rage. Tuesday, investigators added the charge of sexual torture 1st degree.

"Barnhill suffered some damage that was unusual and appears to have been violated with an object,"
said Burch. "I've seen a lot of bad crime scenes. This is probably in the top five I've seen in the 31 years, as far as how brutal the beating was."

Investigators believe there is more to the story than what they say Blackston confessed to
