TROY, AL (WSFA) -

Five people have been arrested and charged in connection to a murder in Troy. 

Gary Lee Pergler's body was found on March 10 in a rural area on Pike County Road 2274. It was evident to police that Pergler had been murdered. 

Pergler's neighbor called police on March 6, concerned. According to Troy Police, the neighbor said he or she hadn't seen or heard from Pergler since around 4 p.m. the day before, which was uncommon. 

"A neighbor expressed some concerns that you know had not seen him since the day before," Randall Barr, Troy Police Chief, said. 

The police responded to Pergler's residence on Pike County Road 5516 and found no sign of Pergler. Upon entering the house, police found signs of struggle that suggested foul play. 

"Once we entered the residence, he wasn’t there and there were some signs of struggle inside the residence so you know that’s when we put out a missing persons report to see if anybody could help us locate him," Barr said. 

Also missing from the residence, Pergler's 2001 Chevrolet Impala. 

Eventually, police did locate both the car and Pergler. However, it was too late for Pergler who was found deceased along Pike County Road 2274. 

His car, on the other hand, was found being driven by 43-year-old Pat Dickey Jr., along Melanie Lane in the Pocosin area.

Dickey was taken to the Troy Police Department for questions and the car was impounded to be checked for evidence. 

Dickey was arrested and charged for murder along with 29-year-old Robert Raymond Johnson. Their bonds are each set at $100,000 and they are currently being held at the Pike County Jail. 

Three other arrests were made. Ashlee L. Beebe, Jason Michael Schultz, and Jessica Mae Furtado were arrested and charged with one count of hindering prosecution in the first degree. Each of their bonds have been set at $5,000. 

According to police, Beebe and Pergler have a child together. 

The case is still under investigation.
