The Richmond County Sheriff's Office released new information this afternoon in the slayings of two North Augusta teen girls.

Sheriff's Capt. Scott Peebles said in a statement that investigators have identified and questioned two men seen on surveillance video provided Monday in reference to the murder investigation of Angela Brooks and Nancy Cushman. 

Originally, Peebles said, investigators believed that Travis Berrian, a suspect in the case, was one of the men in the video.  However, it has now been determined that Berrian is not one of the men in the video. 

Peebles said the identities of the men are not being released at this time, but both men were questioned and released this morning, and are not considered suspects at this time. 

Travis Berrian, however, is still a suspect in this case.  Investigators are still asking that anyone with information about the case call 706-821-1080. 

There remains a $1,000 reward for information which leads to an arrest in the case, and callers may remain anonymous.  Anyone with information concerning Travis Berrian’s whereabouts is also asked to call and provide that information.

Glad they located those two

Glad they located those two men and questioned them, hopefully they will find this other man soon. This was such a tragedy, it will be good if the police can solve this case quickly. It's scary thinking someone who did this is on the loose.

North Augusta teen girls? I thought one was from Warrenville and the other from Beech Island. Whoever Staff is needs a lesson in getting it right.
