In following the trail of the pickup, Chief Criminal Investigator Lewis Tatum and Criminal Investigator Dennis Findley were contacted by Hunt County Investigator Kenneth Peters that he had obtained an affidavit from the girlfriend of the suspect in the case. The vehicle was located Sunday night around 8 p.m. in a heavy thicket 100 yards off of a main road in the Hot Cove area near Quinlan. The vehicle was stuck and could not be removed by the individual or individuals who stole it. Hunt County officers had run the VIN on the truck and found it to have been stolen in Sulphur Springs.
