Three months after Hannah Truelove was found dead outside the apartment complex where she lived, authorities seem no closer to catching her killer.

“I wish we had something new to report on,” Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks, spokesman for the Hall County Sheriff’s Office, said Friday. “Unfortunately there’s just nothing new to report.”

Truelove was found Aug. 24 near Lake Lanier Club apartments on Dawsonville Highway in Gainesville, where she lived with her family.

Wilbanks rejected the idea that the case has gone cold.

“The case is far from cold. They’re (investigators) still actively working it as best they can,” he said.

Wilbanks said officers have been tracking down leads and trying to talk to anyone who may have information on the case.

“Investigators are still trying to talk to some people, but still have some people that are not talking to them as well,” he said.

Wilbanks said investigators have not yet “firmly identified anyone as a suspect.”

Truelove had sent tweets saying she “felt scared” and referred to a “stalker” in the days leading up to her slaying, but investigators were quick to say the tweets weren’t conclusive evidence but the musings of a teenage girl.

Wilbanks said investigators for the time being are doing their best to solve the crime with the information they have.

“They’re continuing to work with any information that they have, to make sure no information is overlooked, and still petitioning the public for information if they have that, to come forward and speak to them,” he said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Hall County tip line at 770-503-3232.
