Law Enforcement: Rumor of ‘Person of Interest’ in Murder of Rita Maze is False
While the FBI is following up leads in the search for a suspect in the killing of Rita Maze, whose body was found Wednesday morning in the trunk of a car in Spokane after apparently being abducted in Montana, Spokane officials say they have not taken anyone into custody.
Law enforcement also confirmed that rumors of a 'person of interest' in the case are false.
When contacted, FBI Public Affairs Specialist Sandra Barker said "The FBI Salt Lake City Field Office, along with the Lewis & Clark County Sheriff’s Office in Montana, continue to the investigate the death of Rita Maze, whose body was found in her vehicle in Spokane, Washington on September 7th. This remains an active investigation and no further comment will be made at this time."
Despite requests from news organizations from around the nation, the FBI and associated County Sheriff's departments are tightly managing information about the case.
