Days after accused double murderer Kirby Wallace was taken into custody, officials are still searching for a key piece of evidence in the case.
Wallace was arrested Friday after 13 days on the run in Stewart and Montgomery counties.
He’s been charged in a string of home invasions and two homicides. On September 23rd, Wallace allegedly attacked Brenda and Teddy Smith at their home before tying them up and setting fire to the residence.
Brenda Smith, age 63, died. Teddy Smith was able to get away and call 911.
Stewart County Sheriff Frankie Gray said they’re still searching for Smith's 2005 black Chrysler 300 with Tennessee tags 477-MBC.
Wallace is believed to have loaded the car with stolen items – an important piece of evidence which could help in the prosecution.
Investigators continue to look into the possibility Wallace received some help while on the run. He continues to be questioned and will be in court to formally face his criminal charges tomorrow morning.
Anyone who sees the vehicle was asked to call authorities.
