Now, four months later, the family has reached out to the first responders who have helped them, including Corydon Police Officer Mark Bye, Indiana Conservation Officer Jim Schreck, and Indiana State Police Trooper Nathan Newton. They were the first to arrive at the scene and provide lifesaving aid.
Indiana State Police detectives Chris Tucker and Josh Banet gathered evidence on the case and helped arrest the suspects in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Timothy Sargent, 41, and Savannah Emich, 20, face murder charges in several states, including this one.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources wished the family well in a Facebook post.
