    Why has this suspect’s name not been released to the public?

    • admin says:

      In cases of domestic abuse the victim’s name and information is not public record, to limit the damage done to the victim. In this situation it would compromise the victim to release such information as it would be easy to follow the path from suspect to spouse. As the suspect is in custody and is no longer a threat releasing such information does no public good other than serving curiosity.
