Murder investigation returns to the Wabash River


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – An unsolved homicide lures search teams back to the Wabash River.

In the last search, it was divers and cadaver dogs who aided in the search. More cadaver dogs returned to the river to help solve a man’s murder here in Vigo County.

Police returned there for a third river search in the Michael Pollack murder investigation.

Police remain tight-lipped about the Pollack murder investigation.

This was the second search of the river in two weeks. Last week, we told you about Great Lakes Search and Rescue out of Wisconsin.

They sent a cadaver dog to help in the search.

Chief Deputy Clark Cottom stated these dogs are highly trained and are very good at locating human remains: “The dogs have worked extensively in the great lakes area and they have been able to find bodies in as deep as 100 feet of water.”

Again, police did not comment on how this search went, and they continue to ask for the public’s help in helping to solve Michael Pollack’s murder.

He was last seen at the Poplar Street Dollar General store on the evening of June 3.
