The announcement was made during a press conference led by Sheriff Brad Pope, shedding light on the sequence of events that unfolded over the course of the investigation.
According to Sheriff Pope, the evidence against Troy Driver was substantial, leading to a conclusion that he preyed on the vulnerability of an innocent victim. Driver’s history of suicide attempts was discussed, with the final attempt resulting in his successful suicide on August 6, 2023.
