Amber Alert Iowa: Girls Found Safe, But Suspect Still Wanted

By    |   Thursday, 10 Jul 2014 03:55 PM

A man first named as a suspect in an Amber Alert kidnapping is now wanted for questioning by an Iowa sheriff’s department in connection with a suspicious death.

Shaun Hogan, 35, was first wanted by the Linn County Sheriff’s Office after three girls were reported abducted Wednesday. The girls were found safe in Waterloo, Iowa, but police are still on the lookout for Hogan, who is considered dangerous.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office told The Gazette that Hogan may have information about a suspicious death in Walker, Iowa.

In an earlier report, the Gazette said the mother of the three girls, who were aged 8 months to 8 years, was found dead in Walker.

Referring to a body found in the road with "multiple, unspecified injuries," the Gazette said police have tentatively identified the person but are not releasing a name until she has been positively identified after an autopsy, which will take place Thursday.

A relative told WHO TV that the victim is Crystal Gaffney and that the three girls are Gaffney’s children.

It wasn’t until after the woman’s body was found Wednesday morning that it was determined the children were missing and the Amber Alert was issued, about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday, the Gazette said.

KWWL reported that the baby is Hogan’s daughter, but the two older girls were not his children.

Hogan was initially reported to have taken the girls in a red, four-door 2001 Pontiac Grand Am, but police said they don’t think he is using that car anymore, the Gazette said.
