The search for Auburn shooting suspect Desmonte Leonard looked to be coming to an end last night as police thought they had a person, believed to be Leonard, hiding in an attic of a suburban Montgomery home. Jay Tate, of the Montgomery Advisor (and, more importantly, FOTP favorite, The Vent), was on the scene, live tweeting as officers entered the house and attempted to coax whoever they thought was hiding in the attic. Despite the use of thermal imaging and tactical methods to try and apprehend whoever they thought was up in the attic, by close to midnight, no one had been apprehended. Then, early this morning comes this:
And around 2:25 a.m. Tuesday, an Associated Press photographer on the scene saw all law enforcement agents that had been there leave without comment. It wasn’t immediately clear why they left. There was no activity around the house.
So, either someone is still up in the attic and is an excellent hide and go seek player or there was no one up there to begin with and the police are back to square one in the search for the alleged killer of 3 people, including 2 former Auburn football players.
In other news, a Facebook search for Desmonte “Woosie” Leonard produces the type of misguided, and heavily misspelled, posts that one might expect in this situation.
