The Covington Police Department’s investigation took so long because Marshall had initiated an image-wiping software on his computer, possibly to erase incriminating material.

“Any time that data is wiped from a hard drive, it is increasingly more difficult to retrieve that data, and we had to send it off to be forensically examined and retrieved,” according to Covington Police Lieutenant Colonel Brian Steffen.
