There’s still a lot of work still to be done but we first have to get him extradited back to South Carolina before he’s officially charged with the crime. Almost immediately, we started getting numerous bits of information about the potential identity of our suspect. Working with the community on matters like this is a valuable resource to law enforcement.NAPS Chief John Thomas
