SPARTANBURG COUNTY, SC (WYFF) - Upstate investigators say "online novels" written by a man who is a person of interest in Nicole Goodlett's disappearance is increasing suspicion about his possible involvement.
Officials with the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office said on Friday that works of fiction by 32-year-old Jerald J. Howard were disturbing and "another piece of the puzzle" that adds to Howard's background.
Authorities say Howard was the last person to be seen with 28-year-old Nicole Goodlett, who investigators have been searching for since March. Last week, the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office said investigators believe she may be the victim of foul play in or around Berkeley County.
Howard is being sought by investigators with the Berkeley County and Spartanburg County sheriff’s offices for questioning.
