Atmore Murder Update
September 15, 2009
The Atmore Police Department is continuing to investigate the beating death of a 51-year old man sometime over the weekend.
Michael Lee Daily was found dead in his apartment on Martin Luther King Drive in Atmore on Sunday afternoon; he had last been seen alive Friday night.
Charles Walker, Dailey’s neighbor from just a few doors down, said Daily was a very likable man, and he can’t understand why someone would want him dead.
Dailey’s sister, Glender Grissett, had become worried when she did not see or hear from Dailey in a few days. So she asked Walker to go inside his apartment to check on him.
“He was just lying there on the floor; there was a lot of blood,” he said. “I can’t know why somebody would do this. He was a very good friend.”
The Atmore Police Department has not released any information about the crime. They have not said if they have a motive, leads or a suspect in the case.
