Police on Wednesday named a convicted sex offender, his parents and a family friend as suspects in the boy’s disappearance. Since the show aired, von Anhalt said people give him dirty looks when he goes to the grocery store. At the mobile home, police spoke with Edenfield’s mother, who told them to search woods they previously had combed, Nazzrie said. A second search of the woods turned up nothing, he said. “They say, ‘Look, here comes the fraud,”‘ he said. “I get lots of e-mails from people bad-mouthing me. It’s very embarrassing.” Police then arrested Edenfield’s mother, Peggy, on suspicion of interfering with a criminal investigation, Nazzrie said.
