“The Hunt County Sheriff’s Office has been made aware that there is a post circulating on social media about statements are no longer being accepted from those in attendance at the Party Venue last Saturday night by law enforcement,” said Sheriff Meeks.

The post stated, “Anyone with useful information regarding the innocence of Brandon Gonzales that was turned down by the Greenville PD or the Hunt County Sheriff’s Dept., we are taking/accepting statements. Feel free to send your statement to email@example.com. We will review each one, thoroughly.”
However, Sheriff Meeks said this information is false.

“I have spoken to one of the attorney’s with the law firm and told them that we are still asking for statements from people and he understood. This investigation is moving forward and every bit of information no matter how small or large is important to investigators so please get in contact with us and tells what you know”.
