Park Police wrote on Friday that detectives received hundreds of tips from the community over the last few days and used “various sources” to develop Brennan as a suspect. Police wrote that they got in touch with Brennan and his “legal counsel” earlier on Friday.
Brennan consented to have Park Police and the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s office search his home. Police then obtained and served an arrest warrant before Brennan turned himself in to police, the press release says.
“Mr. Brennan understands that his apology will not be enough to right his wrongs:”
Then, in a section in which comments from Brennan are quoted, it says:
“I am sick with remorse for the pain and fear I caused the victims on the trail, and online. I am cooperating fully with authorities. I am committed to making amends by addressing, through counseling, the underlying issues that led to my abhorrent behavior.
Police said Detectives in the Investigative Section utilized various sources to further corroborate the information provided by the community before developing Mr. Brennan as a primary suspect.
Contact was made with Brennan and his legal counsel early Friday. Consent was provided to search his home while members of the State’s Attorney’s Office and Park Police were present.
Items of evidentiary value were seized. A subsequent arrest warrant was obtained and served on Brennan after he voluntarily turned himself into detectives.
