Authorities following up on new leads in Elyria in connection with woman’s murder

ELYRIA, Ohio -- Authorities are following up on new leads in Elyria in connection with the murder of Tierra Bryant.

SkyFOX was first on the scene before noon when investigators led a handcuffed man with a hood over his head from an SUV into the woods, where he remained with them for about fifteen minutes.  Police won't say if the man is Rashad Hunt, 39.  He was arrested on murder charges last week in California.

Later Monday, a backhoe arrived to the scene and was also taken into the woods.
Agents once again blocked off a portion of Mussey Avenue as part of the investigation.

Last week, investigators dug for evidence for about 6 hours; no remains were found.

Bryant, 19, was last seen on Bagley Road in Middleburg Heights in 2015.
