At a Tuesday press conference, officials said they believe Watson's fiancé, David Lee Hedrick was involved in her disappearance. They say Hedrick was spotted in the area where the shovel and Watson's burnt SUV were discovered. Mount Pleasant Police Chief Harry Sewell said the witness "positively identified" Hedrick and said he was walking out of the woods with a shovel in his hand.
Watson was officially reported missing on Friday. Hedrick was found dead on Friday, of what authorities have described as a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
