Egypt was 27-years-old when she was murdered inside her Van Buren Township home in June 2017. She was tied up with Christmas lights and shot to death.

Some of Egypt's relatives have been critical of the investigation that for so long had only been in the hands of Van Buren Township police and they were eager to see State Police approach the case with a fresh set of eyes in hopes that an arrest would be made sooner.

On Nov. 5, investigators announced that two people had been arrested in connection to the 2017 murder. No further details have been released on the second person arrested.
