    In this link (video only) the reporter said that police have 3 days to charge the suspects and that it's possible that they're being held on some sort of parole violation. She didn't say that was the case for sure so it could have simply been a guess.

    Going by that then the suspects should be arraigned tomorrow (Monday). Maybe that's why they haven't yet been named.

    So we know TM is charged with home invasion. But were no signs of forced entry.
    We know that the SIL has said when his name was mentioned it meant NOTHING. It was not a name they recognized.
    We know that in the interview with the brother and SIL initially, they mentioned the suspect(s?) had been watching the Justice for Egypt FB page.....
    But in their 2nd interview they have no idea who this person is? I suppose they did say in the initial interview that the suspect was not known to the family BUT the suspect KNEW the family...any locals want to chime in?

    www.wxyz.com › news › ex-con-with-long-rap-sheet-f...
    5 days ago — Turner is talking about 34-year-old Timothy Eugene Moore, an ex-con now charged with the murder of his sister Egypt Covington.

    How can that be his sister? He's black and she's white? Just catching up on this one. Sad.

    I thought Egypt was mixed race - black parent and a white parent? I might be wrong on that. So it is possible this guy could be a brother or half-brother.

    IMO - that sentence is so badly worded! I just replayed the video - D. Turner (who is interviewed) is Egypt’s brother.......the suspect is not related to Egypt as LE are still digging to see if there was any connection between the two prior to her murder. I know, could they possibly have made it more confusing?

    I can't believe this is the only thread about this case. It seems there are a lot of locals here and some of the other local cases, Chelsea Bruck/Danielle Stislicki/Julia Niswender etc. had numerous threads.

    Anyways, the other day I was thinking....she was found bound with 'christmas lights' but it was summer (June). That never struck me as odd until I realized it was summer, so unless she had them up or around somewhere, seems random when something else would be more common.

    this case caught my eye cause the family got sick of the local le and rallied so its handed to state .. and its solved most likely ....it makes me think of small town murder in specific which has been wrecked by the local le and no one is doing a thing about it

    I am wondering about motive...especially as they are considering more than one killer...could be a stalker / rejection issue or violent robbery
