On July 20, police said they were looking to speak with Yu Chieh Liao, who goes by Diana Liao, in relation to the homicide case that saw three people burned in a car and a fourth dumped on the side of a highway.

Glynnis Fox, her sister Tiffany Ear and Cody Pfeiffer were found by firefighters in a burned-out car on July 10. The owner of that car, Hanock Afowerk, was found dead just off Highway 22 two days later.
