According to the criminal complaint in the Upshur County Magistrate Clerk’s Office filed by investigating officer Deputy Dakota Linger with the Upshur County Sheriff’s Department on April, 1, 2020 Deputy Tyler Gordon and Cpl.

Gordon and Linger identified the stolen four-wheeler and had the van towed, with the four-wheeler inside the van, to Jeffries Towing. Dakota Linger went to Jeffries Towing to identify the four-wheeler. Dakota Linger searched the van and took possession of the four-wheeler and released it back to Edward Reed.

On April 12, 2020, Linger went to Boonie Hall Road where Fortune and her boyfriend were reportedly living.
