Family members refused our request for an interview.
Randy Stewart told us he's not sure what happened, but he did give us his theory.

He believes his son Roy Stewart got into an argument with his older brother Ben Stuart, over money.

He also believes the shooting was an accident.

Investigators may believe the same thing, because Ben Stewart has not been charged.
