Investigators invested much time and energy tracking downhundreds of speculative tips and leads trying to find Betty Gail Brown’s murderer. They workedalmost around the clock for days and weeks after the killing,struggled to separate promising tips and leads from unfoundedrumors and speculative beliefs, and at the end of their efforts andstruggles found themselves almost totally baffled by what theystill faced: a horrific murder, no real suspects, no evidence of motive,no clues as to identity of the killer, and a rapidly darkeningroad in front of them.This chapter looks at various people of interest during the course of the investigation, including a former cafeteria worker at Transylvania, a medical technician at St. Joseph’s hospital, and students.
