At approximately 2:17 AM this morning the Ozark-Dale County E911 Center dispatched deputies to the 10000 Blk of Hwy 231 North in reference to a firearm assault.  Upon arrival deputies located a deceased victim inside the residence. The victim has been identified as 47 year old Ricky Dease. Based on our investigation Dease resides at the residence where the incident took place. 


With the assistance from the Dothan Police Department we have located a person of interest and are in the process of interviewing and investigating that individual. This is an ongoing homicide investigation so limited information will be released to protect the integrity of the case.  We do anticipate charges to be filed once we have compiled all of our findings and present them to the Dale County District Attorney’s Office. 


We will be releasing more information as it becomes available. If anyone has any information that are urged to contact us at 774-2335 or visit and click on the crime tip section.
