AIKEN CTY, S.C. --- Aiken County investigators need your help as they continue to work on finding three wanted men and simply identify a suspect in another case. They want to get the suspected criminals off the streets. But, they all are proving to be hard to capture.

Investigators think Dorch is in the New York area. Just a few months ago, Chreser heard the wanted man was in Aiken.
"You know, Aiken is small. You hear a lot of things, but I haven't seen anything for myself."
A second murder suspect - 24-year-old Koran Sapp - also on the run. Investigators want him behind bars cause he is accused of shooting and killing Najee Preister in June. Sapp is also wanted on dogfighting charges.
"We want to get our hands on those 2 individuals as quickly as possible," says Lt. Michael Frank with the Aiken County Sheriff's Office.
Investigators have sent information on Dorch and Sapp to America's Most Wanted. Something Chreser says is good for Prince.
"That's real positive, especially for his family. They can have some closure," says Chreser.
