The Goshen Police Department continue to show Linda line-ups of potential suspects, she said. Though Linda said she has not yet recognized a suspect, the process has “eliminated lots and lots of people.”

The police are still receiving tips on the case and working to investigate each one, according to Linda. The tips have been “more active in the last two months,” she said.

Linda said the FBI is working with the Goshen Police and has read the case file. Currently, pieces of evidence are being analyzed in an Indianapolis lab, she said. However, the lab requires several stages of processing and can take a long time, Linda said.

“This isn’t C.S.I.," Linda said. "Nothing goes fast."

Currently, a majority of the investigation involves preparing in the event that an arrest is made, Linda said. “We’re working to get paperwork and everything ready if we happen to go to trial,” she said.

Though Linda said she believes "God has walked through the sadness with us," she hopes the one-year anniversary can honor James' life.

"We want to remember (James') life," she said. "But also the life we've had since (his death.)"
