"He quit his job, packed up and moved," Person of interest sought in woman's death
THEODORE, Ala. (WPMI —
Mobile County Sheriff investigators need your help locating a person of interest in a death investigation.
They're looking for Ralph Pollock in connection with Joyce "Chassidy" Bosarge's death. Her body was found last month dumped on Rebel Road in Theodore.
It's been a rough few weeks for Bosarge's mother Joyce Zirlott.
"It's been terrible. I'm not able to sleep, just so upset, we can hardly focus or do anything," she said.
Zirlott says her daughter was a mother of two and she can't understand why someone would leave her like that.
"It really bothers me I just can't even believe that someone would stoop so low as to bring my daughter and drop her off in a ditch when she had a heart of gold and would carry somebody on her back to a hospital," she said.
Investigators have identified Ralph Pollock as a person of interest. They say he was an acquaintance of Bosarge's
MCSO Captain Paul Burch says the first time they spoke with him he didn't want to give them a mouth swab for DNA. Burch says when they went back a second time with a court order to get the DNA Pollock was nowhere to be found.
"We went to collect the swab and found out he had quit his job of 22 years packed up and moved and we can't find him," he said.
Burch says that makes them question what Pollock's avoiding. "That's very odd behavior," he said. "You just don't quit your job that you've been at for 22 years and just pack up and move."
For Zirlott not knowing how or why her daughter died leaves her wanting answers and justice.
"I want Chassidy to save other people's lives by getting him off the streets," she said.
Burch says they're waiting for forensics to give them a cause of death.
