    Hmmm. I can't find anything about the murder on a quick Google search. Metz is in a very rural area, though, correct? The town is unincorporated and that usually means very few people live in the area.

    Does this part of the state have a meth problem? Are there a lot of meth heads out in the rural part of the county making drugs? Perhaps some drug users robbed and killed Mr. Hunter in order to get money to buy drugs.

    I have searched unsolved crimes for the area and news archives and nothing is showing up.

    Entering "Metz" into Google took me to France. Anyway I'm wondering, perhaps the case was not considered a murder by LE?

    I found metz, if you look at Indiana it's the top right of the state, we need more info from the orig poster Fifteen.

    Funnily enough I thought maybe LE knew something we don't.

    Metz is about four miles south of Mich. and 3 miles west of Ohio.
    Sheriff office said it is an open case so the can't tell me anything.
    Sammys Dau said its the drug center of the county. She gave the Sheriff a piece of her mind and they threatend to lock her up.
    The sheriff told me the state police handled it.
    The man weighed about 100 lbs and was in poor health. his house wasn't worth much, nor was the estate i don't think.

    I couldn;t find that either, possibly because their online site doesn't go back that far. I don't know what else to do...

    What information are police required to release, about a crime?
    Is there a site to find criminal records that doesn't cost? Or cost is resonable?

    I'm in UK so probably not the best to answer but I think if you have a name and a prison it's possible to see a rap sheet for free. I do not know how much info, if any, LE has to release.

    You should be able to go into the records at the court house and search for the filed search warrent ,if the returned warrent is there you can see what they took if it isnt then at least you can tell what they went in suspecting to find.

    At that point if he owned guns and they are missing and someone has the numbers they can be reported as stolen and they can check them in the gun records to see if they were sold or found in other crimes ,recovered anywhere etc.

    Actualy if it was a murder case and the guns ar really missing that ups the odds of solving a cold case because guns are hardy ever stolen to be disposed of.

    I believe so. At some point a warrent should have been issuesed. Unless it was not ruled a homicide.
