Hudson was found dead Nov. 10 in a pond near his Rountree Road home.

Sheriff Randy Maxwell initially said the death was a case of drowning, but autopsy results later revealed that Hudson was probably strangled to death before his body was dumped in the pond.

Since then, Maxwell has said investigators believe the murderer was someone who knew Hudson.
