BOONE COUNTY – The search for JT McLean, the wanted man in the double homicide of a Boone County mother and her 11-year-old daughter, continues.
The Boone County Sheriff’s Office released further details on Wednesday afternoon regarding McLean, who issued an arrest warrant against a $ 1 million cash-only bond.
The office says investigators recently received information that McLean had acquired a dark-colored motorcycle, which is neither titled nor registered in his name. The make, model and type are unknown at this time.
Investigators believe McLean likely fled the area on a motorcycle as she was not found.
McLean is charged with two counts of first degree murder against Allison and Jozee Abitz. The two were found dead at their Boone County home on Sunday, August 22, after a family member feared he could not contact them. An investigation revealed that McLean was Allison’s longtime boyfriend.
Investigators believe McLean strangled Allison and drowned Jozee between 11:22 p.m. on Saturday, August 21 and 10:15 a.m. on Sunday, August 22, according to a previous report from KOMU 8.
The Boone County Sheriff’s Office said it was working with local and state law enforcement to locate McLean.
McLean’s phones were found destroyed and his other cars were found. McLean was last known to reside on County Road 355 in Fulton. McLean is a truck driver by profession and has ties to Columbia, Fulton, Las Vegas, Chicago and St. Peter, Minnesota.
Over the years, McLean has been seen with and without facial hair, as well as with his hair cut short.
