Police impound 2nd car in two days

Monday, December 20, 2004

Police investigating the murder of Toni Dickison impounded another vehicle in connection to the case on Friday, the second in as many days.

"We have a couple cars impounded," Indiana State Police Sgt. Joe Watts said. "We impounded them for investigative purposes at our state police facility."

Watts, an ISP public information officer, ex-plained that in order to preserve the integrity of the investigation, he cannot disclose details regarding the identities of the owners, descriptions of the vehicles, what officers are looking for or what they have found, which city the second vehicle came from, why either vehicle is being examined or how they are specifically connected to the case.

Det. Tony Guinn, who is the ISP lead investigator for the Dickison murder, told The Brazil Times on Thursday that three other vehicles were previously searched and released. Along with the vehicle impounded on Friday, the fourth vehicle, impounded on Thursday at Plainfield, has not been released.

While Watts said he could not elaborate any further, he did praise the work of the law enforcement team headed by Guinn and Clay County Sheriff's Dept. Deputy Mike Heaton.

"They're working around the clock," said. "The public should be proud of those two guys, and hopefully we'll get a result."
