- A man named McDougal was taken into custody and held at Polk County Jail on Friday night. He stands accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, which is considered a serious felony in Texas. If found guilty, he could face up to two decades behind bars.
This charge has no connection to the case of missing 11-year-old Audrii Cunningham. McDougal is believed to be the last person seen with Cunningham before her disappearance on February 15th. Despite plans to drop her off at her school bus stop that morning, she never made it there or to school.
Multiple law enforcement agencies have joined forces in a search operation along the Trinity River in San Jacinto County for young Audrii. Investigators were led to this location by tips where they discovered items thought to belong to Audrii and McDougal’s truck mired nearby in mud.
UPDATE: On Tuesday, 20 February, the body of 11-year-old Audrii Cunningham has tragically been found in Trinity River.
