TOOELE, Utah — The Tooele City Police Department is in day three of an investigation of a suspected homicide.

They believe the homicide took place at the home located at 363 North Garden Street sometime Monday, June 1.

Investigators still haven't located a body and are looking for one more witness who may be able to shed light on the case.

Detectives say they need help finding 38-year-old Brandon Burr.

They had also been trying to locate 26-year-old Caitlyn Fluckiger, but she was located Thursday.

They are not considered suspects at this time, but were believed to be in the home at the time.

Police believe 24-year-old Devin Perryman is the person who was killed.

He was reported missing from West Valley City.

They are also asking for help finding Perryman, or his body.

Detectives responded to the home on a psychiatric call Tuesday evening, and have had a presence at the home ever since.

"It's really complicated," said Sgt. Jeremy Hansen with the Tooele Police Department. "It kinda morphed into something we really didn't know that was the direction the call was going to go."

Neighbors say they have always had concerns about the home which they call the "Midnight Mechanic." That's because it sits empty with more than a dozen cars outside with no signs of people until late at night.

Officers say they have been called out to the address many times before.

If you have any information about this case, you're asked to call the Tooele City Police Department.
