Business owner stabbed to death in shop

MILAN, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Milan say the owner of a muffler shop was fatally stabbed at his business.

A customer found Charles Reagan slumped over a hydraulic lift Thursday afternoon and city Police Chief Tim Wright says Reagan's wallet was missing, according to The Jackson Sun.

An autopsy was ordered, although police established that Reagan was fatally stabbed.

Wright said investigators have identified a possible suspect, but declined to identify him.

Reagan was a big supporter of Milan High School sports and led the football team onto the field for each game for the past several years while waving a purple banner.
