Police have video of a man they believe is Berry using Wiesenfeld's ATM card after the last time she was seen.

"The ATM gives us a timeline, the video down on East Carson Street gives us a timeline," Zappala said.

During a search of Berry's home and vehicle, police found a ski mask and blood stains.

Still, Zappala has not been able to connect Berry to Wiesenfeld's death. Zappala said his office plans to keep investigating.
