MONROE (WTOL) - In a daily press conference by the Monroe County Sheriff's Department on Monday, June 1, Sheriff Crutchfield said they are following a tip about a box-style, green mini van.
The sheriff's department got a tip that the van may have been parked in the area. They are looking for the person or persons in the van for questioning purposes only, believing they may have witnessed something that may be helpful to the case.
The sheriff did not reveal any further details and stressed they are following up on every lead.
