UTAH COUNTY -- Investigators are frustrated by inconsistencies in statements given by persons of interest in the murder of a retired BYU professor.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports the Utah County Sheriff's Office has continued gathering evidence in the 6-week-old murder of Kay Mortensen. It also expected to have forensic test results back within the next few weeks.

The office said it had spoken with several persons of interests and found "troubling inconsistencies in their statements."

Mortensen was killed Nov. 16 during a break-in involving two men at his Payson home in November. Investigators confirmed a knife was involved.
