On March 20, the sheriff's office made known that they were in pursuit of At Sutton (age 29) through a “Warrant Wednesday” press release.

Following the sheriff's office's appeal to the public for assistance in locating Sutton, his legal representative, whose identity remained undisclosed, came forward on March 25 to declare that Sutton intended to surrender, as per numerous statements from the agency.

The sheriff's office refrained from promptly disclosing the identity of Sutton's attorney when queried on Sunday night. Additionally, there was no immediate response from Sutton's sports agent regarding a request for comment. Sutton himself appears not to have addressed the allegations.

Sheriff Chad Chronister articulated in Sunday's proclamation, “My condolences go out to this woman as she perseveres through the aftermath of this man's heinous deeds.”
