Niagara Gazette — In an Aug. 2010 US&J story on the five-year anniversary of Rucci’s disappearance, investigators said Hueber was the initial person of interest due to his relationship with Sheryl, but he is not the only “target” of the investigation.
Hueber’s former house will be heading to auction following a 2011 foreclosure.
That foreclosure is what allowed sheriff’s officials to get inside the house. Sheriff James Voutour said his department received permission to enter the house, something they were denied in the past by Hueber.
“We’ve tried to approach him since his release ... and he’s chosen not to respond,” Capt. Kristen Neubauer said in an Aug. 2010 interview. “We can’t compel him to talk to us. We’ve talked to multiple people all the way from direct acquaintances to people who’ve lived in the area.”
As word got out about Wednesday’s search, media outlets showed interest in the cold case on Thursday. Voutour said Wednesday’s search didn’t turn up anything.
“It was just another day in a missing person case,” Voutour said.
The state police and sheriff’s department said they followed up on more than 200 leads. In 2011, Voutour said, “We believe her to be a victim of foul play.”
