Ashland Police on Grubbs case: We're not giving up

ASHLAND, Ore.-- Ashland Police reached out to federal agents for advice on how to solve the murder of David Grubbs and they hope it helps them identify a suspect.
"We're trying to exhaust everything we've had to figure out what happened," said Deputy Chief Corey Falls, Ashland Police Department.
In early July Ashland Police made the trip to Washington D.C. to meet with the FBI.
They hope the experts can help them find out what happened to Grubbs, who was murdered in November 2011. He was nearly decapitated.
"It gives us another source to look at and maybe something will come of it," Falls said.
Officers presented the case to professional profilers and what they have done in the investigation so far.
Then the agents gave police advice on how to figure out what happened and even find out who is responsible.
"They will give you a profile in terms of what you might want to look for in terms of a suspect," he said.
Falls can't say what agents told them, but says it is another step in the right direction. Agents helped them identify leads to look into.
Now police are waiting on results as experts compile all the information, the criminal profiles and the tips on how to solve it.
Falls says he is not sure if it will help, but says only time will tell.
"We haven't stopped and we will continue this fight to figure out what happened," he said.
Agents will provide Ashland Police a full report in a couple of months.
