Investigators returned Tuesday to the home of a Sheffield grandmother who was murdered more than two years ago.
Pat O'Hagan, 78, disappeared from her Sheffield home in the fall of 2010 and was later found murdered several miles away. Police have made no arrests in the case.
Tuesday, detectives from the Vermont State Police were back at her home, once again searching the property. They say this is routine in a case like this to check to see if anything may have been overlooked.
In November, a detective testifying in federal court said that Sheffield resident Michael Norrie partially confessed to playing a role in O'Hagan's murder, but then Norrie stopped cooperating with investigators. Norrie is already in custody facing federal gun charges in an unrelated case. Police have not confirmed whether Norrie is a suspect, but say they are confident in the work they are doing and they still need more solid evidence to present to prosecutors.
Norrie has six prior criminal convictions dating back to 2008. They're a mix of nonviolent felonies and misdemeanors involving stealing, drug crimes and running from police.
Investigators say O'Hagan's murder involved multiple people and indicated that those individuals may already be in custody for other crimes.
