  1. 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?

    1. 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.
