Person Of Interest Questioned in Missing Women Case

Lubbock PD Lubbock PD

Several tips helped lead police to a person of interest in the missing women investigation. It was over a week ago when Peggy Merimon and Kay Harrelson went to lunch at the Lubbock State School. Both women were last seen getting into an old gray or white sedan with a man that looked like what police artist sketch.

Police did confirm with NewsChannel 11 that the man they interviewed also matched this description. The interview lasted two hours, but the man was let go and is not yet being called a suspect. Police could not confirm if the man was employed by the State School but they do say they served a search warrant on a matching vehicle, which they are now running tests for DNA.

On Thursday NewsChannel 11 spoke with Peggy Merimon's family at the Lubbock State School, where a prayer vigil was held for both women. Hundreds came to show their support, and tell family members how much the women meant to them. Merimon's family told us they believe the disappearence has to be foul play and they can prove it.

"We know that something's going on here, more than just two ladies out galavanting oir going somewhere because there hasn't been any transactions with either bank account or credit cards, no incoming or outgoing cell phone calls. All those things lead us to believe there's foul play," says Sven Appleton. 

Police are still investigating many leads and they ask if you do have any information about the disappearence, you are asked to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
