Posted:

DECATUR - Lowell Turner, 34, was released from the custody of the Macon County Sheriff today.

He was arrested December 9 in connection with the death of Isaiah Wiley.

Wiley, 21, was shot and killed over the weekend in the 400 block of East Waggoner Street in Decatur.

In a joint news release from the Decatur Police Department and the State's Attorney's office, authorities stated "insufficient evidence" exists to charge Turner with the crime. The arrest was based upon an eyewitness statement. During the course of the investigation, authorities say inconsistencies were found in the eyewitness' statement.

No charges have been filed and Turner was released today.

The homicide of Isaiah Wiley remains an active investigation.
