Court records show Parker has had past run-ins with the law in Owen County on charges of drug possession and criminal trespassing. RTV6 couldn't find any felony charges on record.
Indiana State Police Sgt. Curt Durnill said in a press conference Thursday night investigators hadn't confirmed Parker's whereabouts the night of Shaylyn's disappearance.
"[Kyle Parker's] whereabouts at the time she went missing, we don't know exactly where he was," Durnill said. "He's definitely a suspect, but there are going to be other persons of interest in this case. Again: Nowhere near over. He's been arrested. We don't know what his actual role was right now."
