Officials have not commented on the investigation, but according to court documents, the defendant in the 2022 homicide, 30-year-old James Francis Nulty, did not appear for a pretrial hearing on April 26th. Judge Daniel Merritt Jr issued a warrant for his arrest for failing to appear that same day.

Today, residents living on Jodi West Drive contacted R News to report that detectives had established a crime scene around Nulty's residence. Neighbors speculate that Nulty may have taken his own life, but that has not been confirmed by officials.
