A second body found near Idalou last week turns out to be the man authorities had sought for questioning in the killing of his mother in the same  area. The body of 26-year-old Derek Ryan Hale was found  Friday evening on a farm east of Farm-to-Market Road 400 on East County Road 6200– less than 1000 feet from where the body of his mother, 49-year-old Joanie Deeanne Parker was discovered earlier. She had been shot three times. The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office says her son died of blunt force trauma and stab wounds. Deputies have not yet named any suspects in the killings. Anyone with information about the deaths is urged to contact Crimeline at 741-1000.
