CHIPLEY - Two men have been indicted in the April 19 slaying of retired Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission game warden James William Shores.

The indictment was handed down Monday, June 16, by a Washington County grand jury.

Grand jurors found probable cause that Zachary Taylor Wood, 23, and Dillon Scott

Rafsky, 21, both of Geneva, Ala., committed first-degree murder, burglary while armed and

robbery while armed.

Shores, 66, of 2754 Dauphin Rd., was found at his family’s old homestead, located at 2842 Johnson Rd., after the Washington County Sheriff’s Office received information from the Alabama Bureau of Investigation that a vehicle connected to the Saturday, April 19, shooting of an Alabama State Trooper was registered to Shores. The trooper in that case, Marcel Phillips, was treated and released from a Dothan hospital for injuries obtained during a gunfight that took place when he stopped the suspects for speeding.

Officers discovered Shores’ body while performing a welfare check of his property.
