  • Police are still seeking tips in the homicide investigation of Randy E. Stone.

David Love, the pastor of New Hope Baptist Church, has resigned his position. The resignation comes after Independence

police executed a search warrant last week at the church on East Lexington Road as part of the homicide investigation of Randy

E. Stone.

New Hope Baptist made the announcement in a "press

release" on its Web site on Sunday.



"David Love has resigned from the position of Pastor at New

Hope Baptist Church," the statement read. "The Church and it's leadership are committed to

moving forward to serve our community. Please pray for us as we plan out

the future direction of New Hope."



According to Independence police, the search of the church was part of the ongoing investigation of Stone's death. They also interviewed "persons of

interest." No charges have been filed.

Stone, 42,  was

discovered at his

Farmer's Insurance office, 13912 East Noland Court, on March

31.



Stone's obituary says, "He was an active and

faithful member of New Hope Baptist Church." According to a KSHB

Channel 41 story, "Stone was active in church ministry, traveling

on mission trips and driving a bus on Sundays to pick-up students for

Sunday school."

If you have any information about Stone's death, call the TIPS Hotline

at 816-474-8477 or the Independence Police Investigations Division at

816-325-7330.
