Authorities on Tuesday released the identity of a Snellville man shot to death in a remote North Hall park Sunday night but provided little additional information in the unsolved murder.

Richard Kevin Schoeck, 45, died from multiple gunshot wounds from a small caliber weapon, Hall County Sheriff’s Col. Jeff Strickland said. Schoeck was found on the ground next to his Ford pickup truck at Belton Bridge Park.

Strickland said Schoeck was in the park to meet with his wife, Stacey Schoeck, 38.

Stacey Schoeck called 911 from the park at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday to report the shooting, Strickland said.

Authorities have not commented on why the Snellville couple was meeting at a park in Hall County.

The Schoecks operated a summer day camp in Snellville, according to a Web site advertising the camp.

Stacey Schoeck is an administrator at a Decatur neurosurgical clinic, according to the clinic’s Web site. Her husband was a facilities manager at an Atlanta-area biotechnologies firm, according to a profile on a business networking site.

Authorities continue to investigate the shooting, Hall County’s first murder of 2010.

Citing the ongoing investigation, Strickland would not discuss any possible motives being considered.
