Detectives were able to determine a suspect using all available technology in law enforcement investigations.

"Spent countless hours?" Hahahahahaha. Such melodrama. You can bet your bippy that those hours were counted. Regular time. Overtime pay. Number of deputies involved in the case. Etc.. Not only to be used for the Sheriff's annual propaganda report, but may also be questioned by the defense attorney representing the defendant.

Well, I don’t know what useful information the hours spent finding this man is relevant in the defense, in fact, the assumption that is is laughable, but if someone wants to make that a point certainly is the freedom of speech.
