Also according to Sydoriak, Meeks did not have a criminal history. He was once an employee at McKee Foods in Gentry, but had lost his job in February. He also had two vehicles repossessed and his land was in foreclosure.
Meeks' family had reported him missing on Wednesday night and said he had been depressed and had talked about suicide. His family and officials searched for Meeks in the woods across the street from the Chamberlain's home.
Sydoriak also says the Meeks and the Chamberlains did not know each other. Meeks had a son about Dustin's age who also did not know the Chamberlain family.
