RUSK COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

A suspect in a Rusk County murder case admitting to trying to conceal the crime, the Rusk County Sheriff's Office says.

Lamarlon Thompson, 38, of Mount Enterprise, was arrested Sept. 28 and charged with murder after officials found the body of Floyd Thompson, 60, in a well. Floyd Thompson was found Tuesday in the well, off of State Highway 315 near Mount Enterprise. He had been missing for a month.

Friday afternoon the department later released more evidence in the case, saying that a three-day search led to the discovery. Investigators also collected enough evidence at the scene to identify Lamarlon Thompson as a person of interest.

A subsequent interview with him resulted in the suspect "making admissions to causing the death and concealing the remains of Floyd Thompson," the sheriff's office said in a statement.

A murder warrant was issued by Pct. 5 Justice of the Peace Joe Sorrells and Thompson was charged and booked into the Rusk County Jail. He was also charged with failure to register as a sex offender.
