Abbeville Police Chief Eric Blankenship says he’s received several calls and texts about the crime in a social media post. Blankenship goes on to say that the person responsible is in custody and that there is no reason for the community to be worried about someone on the loose.

He goes on to say that the Henry County Task Force is in charge of the investigation, and expects Sheriff Will Maddox to provide further details. Blankenship asked that you keep the families involved in your prayers.
