Cadiz Police Chief Hollis Alexander said they are still waiting on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (commonly abbreviated as ATF or BAFTE), the federal agency investigating the gun’s origin.
Alexander said the time it takes the ATF to get back to local law enforcement on issues of this nature depends largely on its workload. He added there still isn’t any new evidence that would point to whether or not it had previously been used in a crime.
On Wednesday, Oct. 26, the handgun was found on the ground at an apartment complex parking lot across the street from Trigg County Middle School, in the 200 block of Lafayette Street.
