Share this post

An investigation into any role the father of convicted murderer Dustin McCowan might have had in the death of Amanda Bach, has ended.  Sgt. Larry LaFlower, Public Information Officer of the Porter County Sheriff's Department says  his department and the County Prosecutor based their decision to not pursue charges against the father, Ellliot McCowan, because there is no probable cause at this time.
However, Sgt. LaFlower says if new information is received, the investigation could be reopened.
According to an article in the Times, Dustin McCowan was sentenced to the near-maximum 60-years in prison for the Sept 2011 murder of his former Portage girlfriend.  Last month the younger the younger McCowan was sentenced after being convicted of shooting Bach during the early morning hours after she showed up at the Union Township home he was living in at the time with his father, according to the article.
