    Will County officials said Tuesday they’re still hot on the trail of the so-called “Honey Bee Killer.”

    But investigators looking for the suspect, who killed one man in Washington Township, Illinois and shot three others during a bi-state crime spree, offered little new information about the investigation Tuesday after a brief court session, according to the Northwest Indiana Times.

    "I know that (investigators) are really busy, and we still have a lot of tips coming in," Pat Barry, spokesman for the Will County Sheriff's Department, told the Northwest Indiana Times. "We're still looking for the vehicle and at that same composite sketch from Indiana."

    The lawyer for former suspect Brian Dorian appeared in Will County court to request the return of a number of Dorian’s personal items.

    There were clear signs Wednesday night that the stress and notoriety of being accused of killing a man and wounding two others had taken a significant personal toll on the Lynwood police officer.

    Dorian was arrested on October 8 and charged with first-degree murder. He was released, and the charge was dropped, on October 12 after his alibi checked out.

    No police say they’re searching high and low for the “mentally unstable” individual who gunned down a group of construction workers, and less than an hour later fired on a Lowell, Indiana farmer.

    Many people said they were relieved when Brian Dorian was arrested and accused of a two-state shooting spree, but his release is an admission that the real killer is still out there.

    Police have narrowed the description of the vehicle they’re searching for: it’s a light blue Chevy Cheyenne made sometime between 1991 and 1998. The passenger side of the truck has a discoloration that makes it lighter than the rest of the vehicle.

    Investigators continue to urge anyone with information about the shootings or truck to call (800) 750-2746 or (219) 755-3346.
