The investigation is leaving residents and officials on edge.

"Just worried, you know, about the next person that steps up there to that position," said Dorothy McPhearson. "Dangerous it sounds like now."

Local 2 was told Tuesday to expect written updates from the Sheriff's Department on the investigation, but not when those might be coming.
