Boone County Sheriff: Have You Seen This Murder Suspect?
The Boone County Sheriff's Office is still on the hunt for a suspect wanted for two counts of first-degree murder.
JT McLean has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the homicides of Allison Abitz and her 11-year-old daughter Jozee. This is according to a post on the Boone County Sheriff's Office Facebook page.
The Sheriff's Office says all vehicles registered to or owned by McLean are accounted for so police say his mode of traveling is unknown at this time. The Sheriff's Office believes McLean is trying to disappear and limit his ability to be tracked. They've released three photos they believe are of McLean: One with facial hair. One clean-shaven. And one with short hair. Police say the photos show what McLean may look like if he's trying to change his appearance.
The Sheriff's Office goes on to say their case has been shared across and beyond the United States via social media to over one million people. And that they will continue to utilize the technology and resources available to them to aid in the capture and prosecution of McLean.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of McLean or the murder investigation is asked to contact the Boone County Sheriff's Office through Boone County Joint Communications by calling 573-442-6131 or 311. Anonymous tips can be shared through CrimeStoppers at 573-875-TIPS (8477).
The Boone County Sheriff's Office says, "If anyone observes McLean please contact your local law enforcement to report the sighting and enable an immediate response. All subjects are considered innocent until found guilty in a court of law."
