With no real news to report as of late, law enforcement who have been combing the Waste Management landfill in Savannah hoping to find little Quinton or evidence of a crime have taken the weekend off. Here is what appeared on the Chatham County Police twitter feed. You can visit to read some of the comments from the public:
The CCPD and FBI landfill search teams looking for Quinton Simon have sorted through literally tons of garbage over the last four days. This is a grueling part of our investigation that can only be performed by a team of specially-trained law enforcement searchers.
The Quinton Simon investigative case team will spend Saturday and Sunday conducting numerous interviews, and will continue to analyze evidence they have already gathered in this case.
We have worked every day since we got the call that little Quinton was missing. We want you to know how much we appreciate the hundreds of messages of support that our department has received since this case began & how much it means to everyone working tirelessly on this case.
This stand-down coincides with the normal hours of operation for Waste Management, and will give everyone a chance to re-set before the landfill search resumes just after sunrise on Monday morning.
It is also dangerous & searchers are exposed to numerous – and very real – health and safety hazards every minute that they are working. To help maintain the health of the search team, they will be standing down for two days after their landfill shift ends late this afternoon.
