The preliminary hearing to determine if Roy Snell Jr. will be tried for the murder of Richard Atwood will resume Wednesday June 3rd from 8:30 am to 4:30pm.
The proceedings can be viewed via Youtube by going to the Newaygo County website:
Once there you can click on ‘Departments’ and then ‘Courts’ which will display Circuit, District and Probate courts. The hearing is being held in District Court with Judge Melissa Dykman presiding.
Atwood, 25 years old at the time, went missing nearly 37 years ago. His brown 1975 Pontiac Trans-Am was recovered in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area two months later and Snell was reported as the last person to be seen with Atwood.
His body has never been found.
