A person of interest in the Jodi Parrack murder case has been arrested in Michigan nearly seven years after the 11-year-old was found dead at a local cemetery.

Parrack, of Constantine, Mich., disappeared in November 2007 while coming home from a friend's house. Her mother, Jo Gilson, discovered her body later that night, according to CBS News. Her death was ruled a homicide.

Police have been eying 46-year-old Raymond Emmett McCann, a former Constantine reserve police officer, since the beginning and now he's been arrested. McCann was picked up Friday and charged with perjury for allegedly lying to police about where he was at the time of Parrack's killing, reported. He has not been named an official suspect, the local news outlet noted.

"McCann’s behavior, after the discovery of the victim’s body, seemed unnatural and investigators became increasingly suspicious of possible involvement," the probable cause affidavit states. "Furthermore, I am aware that the victim’s body contained injuries to both of her wrists, consistent with the application of handcuffs. Given the fact the McCann was a reserve police officer at the time of this incident, he would have access to handcuffs."

Gilson, Parrack's mother, addressed the media Tuesday and said she has mixed feelings about McCann's arrest.

"It's kind of bittersweet because everybody that loves Jodi is glad that the case is moving forward," she said. "But most of the McCann family is like family to us, so both families are suffering for both people involved."
