CARTERVILLE ˜ The husband of a Williamson County [Illinois] dispatcher was found dead in the bed of a truck at Pin Oak Motel in Carterville early this morning.

Williamson County police found Randall S. Yancey around 6 a.m. in the bed of a truck at Pin Oak Motel, 1200 Pin Oak Dr., with what appeared to be a single gunshot wound to the chest.

"We are treating this as a homicide for standard procedures, but no suspects are currently being pursued," Williamson County Sheriff Tom Cundiff said on the scene.

Yancey was the husband of Melissa Yancey, a dispatcher for the Williamson County Police Department, according to Cundiff. Melissa Yancey has been a member of the department for more than a decade.

"It hit pretty close to home because of the last name," Cundiff said.

Employees at Pin Oak Motel refused to comment.

Williamson County Coroner Mike Burke ordered an autopsy, and it was expected to be completed Tuesday night.
