Monroe Co Sheriff to hold press conference on Chelsea Bruck murder

WEB UPDATE: According to the Monroe Evening News, a 27-year-old Newport man has been arrested for the crime.

Monroe County Sheriff Dale Malone will be holding a Press Conference regarding the ongoing
Homicide Investigation of Chelsea Bruck.

New developments in the case are said to be shared in an investigation update. It is unclear with the major announcement is.

Chelsea Bruck attended a 2014 Halloween Party with hundreds of others on Post Road in Monroe County's Frenchtown Township. It was the last time Chelsea was seen alive.

Countless searches for her turned up nothing until April 2015 when investigators say fabric from her hand-made Halloween costume of comic villain Poison Ivy with green leaves was recovered in Flat Rock.

Then several weeks later, also April 2015, Chelsea Bruck's body was discovered by men who were trying to free a dump truck stuck in the mud in a wooded area on Briar Hill Road in Monroe County's Ash Township.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner ruled that Miss Bruck died of blunt force trauma, but no weapon was used. That could mean she was either beaten to death or strangled. 
Her body was discovered six months after the Halloween Party.  And in June, 2016 the Monroe County Sheriff asked the public to identify a person it wanted to question in a photo from the party.
Wearing a hooded sweatshirt he was seen at the party as these pictures were taken. Investigators believed he is a new witness who had never been previously interviewed. No charges had been announced, as he was questioned and released.
