On July 26, 1986, Eddie Ford returned home from work and parked in the alley.

Eddie died on his back porch from three gunshot wounds. The victim was divorced from his wife at the time of the death. Approximately two weeks prior to the homicide, someone fired shots at the victim in front of his residence. Bullets recovered at the scene were a .32 caliber.
