The manhunt has included areas in West Alabama and East Mississippi.

Armistead said that Sheriff-elect Scott Lolley had requested an increase in funding for the department’s budget to help pay for the addition of an investigator to his staff.

Armistead added that Lolley planned to move one of the deputies to that post and hire an additional deputy to replace him, if possible.
