STERLING, Ill. - Law enforcement officials in Illinois have issued a national alert as they look for a man suspected in two murders, according to a release.
Terence Doddy, 36, of Rockford, is a suspect in the murders of Tonya Bargman, 44, of Monticello, Illinois, and Todd Hansmeier, 37.
Officials said Bargman was found dead Tuesday at the Willow Creek rest stop on Interstate 39, about 50 miles south of Rockford. A rest stop attendant found Bargman at 8:30 p.m. Investigators said surveillance video showed a woman being attacked by a man as she left a bathroom.
Hansmeier was found dead Monday in Rockford, officials said.
