One of the witnesses looked at some pictures including the one of the man who had been described as regularly being seen leading a dog and carrying a stick. She didn’t pick him out. The investigating officer also followed up on our other suspect, a young man seen with a dachshund. She seems not to believe he had anything to do with the crime.
So, we are still looking for the person matching the original description. One positive thing to come out of this week, other than eliminating the above suspects, was that the witness was positive that it was a reddish brown dachshund. So anyone local, please keep an eye out for a young black man with that dog.
