I have been following this on the local news. I am very worried about Mr Rolman. They showed a still shot from the video but it will be difficult to identify the man who got into the car unless someone recognizes his clothing. I am curious as to why he withdrew a large sum of money.
He was withdrawing money for his employee payroll. It looks like he was reported missing only an hour after leaving the bank.
From your link:
This certainly did not sound good. RIP Mr. Rolman and I hope LE can provide justice for the family.

I'm so happy to hear that FBI has a POI. Through his FB page I found his children who have posted how devastated they are that he was found deceased. Praying that justice is swift and the family can heal.
RIP Mr. Rolman :rose:
This is awful! Goes to show you are not safe anywhere.
Here is a video showing the person of interest in the case.

My guess would be this is an ex-employee who knew his pattern of withdrawing money for payroll.
I'm sure the details will come out pretty soon.
2 and 30 mph? Hmmm :thinking:
Btw, that perp is not at all what I was picturing in my mind. Thought he'd be much younger. But I guess heroin could do that to you.
Just a speed freak and an opportunist.
I wonder why he felt like he needed to shoot the guy after robbing and abducting him ?
I'm curious if they knew one another or if he was employed at the scrap yard that the victim owned at some point in time.
They are releasing details on this pretty rapidly. It's nice to see a police department that doesn't hold back information from the public and releases details as they get them.
I'll bet his wife is going to end up being involved in this as well.

Man charged in Lockland death might not be shooter
The man taken into custody after a police chase Saturday has been charged with aggravated murder in the death of a 72-year-old man abducted from Lockland.
Christopher R. McFerron, 44, of Lockland, allegedly caused the death of James Rolman Friday while attempting an aggravated burglary, according to court documents. But police couldn't say Monday at a press conference if McFerron was the gunman who killed Rolman.
"We're still trying to determine if there is more than one individual," said Lockland Police Chief Jim Toles.
I remember noticing the guy in the initial abduction video was wearing what looked like shorts and white socks. When the chase was over, the guy was wearing long pants. Maybe that is why they are unsure if he is the right guy............or the only guy.

Rolman was found Saturday morning dead in his car, which had been hidden inside a silo behind the closed J&R Trucking, where McFerron used to work.
Toles said McFerron had in the past taken scrap metal to Rolman's business and knew Rolman's routine.
McFerron was a person of interest in the homicide investigation Saturday when he led dozens of police officers on an hour-and-10-minute chase that wound through Interstate 74 to Interstate 275 east, forcing officers to close portions of the highway.
Just like I suspected.....he knew him.
Lockland abduction suspect charged with aggravated murder
They went ahead and charged this guy.
However, they can't find the money or the victims cell phone.
Still wondering if there were two people involved.
Video report below.
