Community Response Successful in Identifying Vehicle
On February 9, 2015, the Moorhead Police Department held a News Conference requesting the public's assistance in identifying a vehicle. The vehicle was captured on surveillance cameras on an adjacent property to where Thomas Bearson's body was found. As a result of assistance from many community members, the vehicle and owner were identified. Investigators are comfortable that this vehicle is not associated with the on-going homicide investigation. The vehicle owner has requested to not be identified; however the vehicle in question was a 2005 Nissan Maxima. This vehicle type was among the tips received from helpful citizens.
The community wide support is greatly appreciated as investigators continue to follow-up various leads. Through community partnerships we are more efficient with police resources. Investigators on this case confirm there is a lot of follow-up being conducted on this investigation and value the continued community involvement to strive toward identifying the responsible party in this tragic crime.
