The Rural Major Case Squad investigating the June 9th murders of Sharon, Donnie and Taron Luetjen reconvened this morning (06-30-09.)

There are about fifteen investigators from at least ten different law enforcement agencies that are following up on leads and making contact with people on information that has been received by law enforcement in the case.

He is fighting extradition back to Missouri and is being held in the Anderson County jail on a three million dollar cash only bond.

Authorities are also asking the media for unedited copies of news conferences and the Luetjen's funerals.
