Law enforcement agencies from Montgomery and Stewart counties continue the manhunt for Kirby Wallace—the man sought for two murders and multiple home invasions over the last couple weeks.
Montgomery County Sheriff John Fuson said during a news conference Thursday that law enforcement on the ground and in the air spotted a man thought to be Wallace in the area near Poplar Springs Road where a second perimeter was established.
He says the rugged terrain makes the manhunt more dangerous and more difficult.
Stewart County Sheriff Frankie Gray says it’s difficult to speculate on what Wallace is doing during the day, they are just acting on the information they have.
Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett announced the county has added $10,000 to the reward money for information leading to Wallace’s arrest, and five anonymous citizens donated an additional $500 each, with that total now at $20,000.
Police are also asking that anyone with trail cams in the perimeter areas to check for any images of Wallace and to turn those over to investigators.
Wallace is considered armed and dangerous and anyone with information on his whereabouts should dial 911 or 1-800-TBI-Find.
About 800 tips have already been received by dispatchers in Montgomery and Stewart counties.
