News Photo by Julie Riddle Detective Sgt. Steve Davis works at his computer at the Alpena Police Department on Wednesday.
"Last summer, during what Davis called one of the most complex cases of his career, he had to call in the help of the Michigan State Police during a months-long investigation into the disappearance of missing Alpena teenager Brynn Bills.
Police later found Bills’ body buried in a back yard in Alpena Township. No charges have been filed related to her death.
That investigation, now turned into a death investigation by the State Police, required pursuing numerous angles and talking to hundreds of people, Davis said.
""Since his young days as a patrol officer, Davis has noted an alarming loss of communication skills within multiple age groups, a change he chalks up to social media’s enabling of faceless retorts and insults without consequences.""
