New Details Released In Deadly Jefferson County Shooting
By Mark Carlson, Reporter
FAIRFIELD, Iowa — Investigators have released new details into a shooting that killed a Jefferson County man Saturday night. According to court documents, Tyler Webster, 33, admitted to shooting and killing Buddy Frisbie, 32, when speaking to a dispatcher shortly after the shooting occurred.
“He is the one who spoke with the dispatcher, we believe that the call had been made by another person on scene, but that Mr. Webster wanted to speak with the dispatcher,” said Assistant Jefferson County Attorney Patrick McAvan. Webster later told investigators on scene that he shot Frisbie twice in the face with a .45 caliber handgun at Frisbie’s residence, according to the records.
Webster was later charged with first degree murder and is now being held on $2 million cash only bond.
“It’s just kind of a situation that escalated,” said McAvan, who declined to go into detail about why the two may have been arguing. “We’re still putting the pieces together, the investigation is ongoing.”
Investigators were originally called to 2469 Marigold Boulevard in rural Jefferson County at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday on a report of a shooting. Frisbie was pronounced dead on scene. Officers later found a gun in the glove box of Webster’s truck, after he told them he had put the murder weapon there, according to the documents.
