Bean’s daughter says she remembers seeing her mother with a man who matches the description of Heuermann.
“Our understanding is that her daughter Cameron was the last one to have seen her on June 1, 2017,” says Dr. Mark Dordeaux, of the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office. “At that time, she was accompanying her mother to have her nails done at a salon in South Carolina. There was a male companion of Ms. Bean who was driving them. At this time, I understand the daughter gave them two tickets to her graduation, which was to occur the next evening June 2, 2017.”
The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office says as of now, there is no direct evidence linking Heuermann to the case, but the office has contacted the FBI for help.
