WSIL -- Illinois State Police have teamed up with U.S. Marshals and law enforcement offices nationwide to locate Terence Doddy, 36, of Rockford.

Doddy is a suspect in the murders of Tonya Bargman, 44, of Monticello, and Todd Hansmeier, 37, of Rockford. Hansmeier was found dead Monday at a Rockford business. Bargman was discovered Tuesday night at the Willow Creek rest stop on I-39 just outside the small town of Paw Paw. 

State Police have released a store surveillance image of Doddy taken in the Rockford area, as well as a picture of Bargman's 2013 gray Nissan Altima which Doddy is believed to be driving.
