Authorities Create New Task Force In Brittany Locklear Case

Posted April 22, 2004

— Investigators say they are starting from scratch in the Brittany Locklear case.

Hoke County Sheriff Hubert Peterkin is hoping a new task force can find her killer.

In 1998, the 5-year-old child was kidnapped from her bus stop, raped and killed. Investigators found Locklear's body in a drainage ditch.

The task force plans to re-interview as many as 100 people, including witnesses, possible suspects and family members.
