  • The apartment complex is off of North Main Street, according to police. Not sure if this is a smaller apartment complex or if it has recently been renamed. Her car was found in the lot of building C.

  • That’s weird – I attempted to look up the Hampton Arms Apartments out of curiosity and cannot find a single trace of them online. Anybody know where this is supposed to be?
