  • Family members of the late Ed Hataway are asking the public to support the investigation of the Olney resident's death.
    Hataway, disappeared on September 16, 2012, and was found dead on November 7, 2012.
    As the one-year anniversary of his disappearance approaches, Anita Scott, who is the fiancée of Hataway's brother, John, held a meeting of family and friends Wednesday at The Holiday, discussing details of the case and expressing frustration over how law enforcement has handled the investigation.
    "The way I feel, they're not doing anything," Scott said.
    She and John were dissatisfied with the way the case has been conducted from the start, saying that there was a delay in classifying Hataway as missing and noting other ways in which they felt the investigation was not progressing.
    "They don't want us to show their incompetence," she said. "We're dealing with people who don't know how to do their job."
    Scott distributed a letter to the seven people who were in attendance, giving a timeline of the case so far along and noting some of their frustrations in the case. She asked them to sign the letter and mail it to a list of state officials, also providing their phone numbers.
    Anyone who would like more information may call Scott at (217) 853-3424.
    Messages left Wednesday morning with lllinois State Police Special Agent Timothy Brown and State's Attorney David Hyde were not returned before deadline. Olney Police Department Sergeant Brian Nuttal, who is working the case for the city, was not on duty today.
