The chief added, “Our job is to present the very best case possible to the prosecutor ... We like to see exactly how things are going to play out.”
Huerkamp emphasized, “Like always, the Batesville police did a terrific job.” Since they didn’t know about the burglary and didn’t start investigating “until nine months after it happened, it was past the point of finding physical evidence .... (but) they chased down every lead and got statements from people.
“This is the standard we see from them time in and time out.”
