In regards to the Center Street homicide investigation, formal charges have been filed on two alleged suspects [Wes Hampton and Aarron Vance] by the Tippecanoe County Prosecutors Office, but the investigation is on-going.  Based on statements taken by Lafayette Police, detectives are pursuing further leads on additional person(s) of interest or witnesses.   As previously released, this was not a random incident.  At this time, investigators do not believe there is an on-going threat to public safety.

Anyone having information regarding this incident should contact LPD at (765) 807-1200 or the anonymous WE-TIP hotline at (800)78-CRIME.

The fact a person has been arrested or charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until andunless proven guilty in a court of law.
