According to the report, food left behind by the suspects eventually led to them being identified.
Police were able to figure out the food was corn dogs purchased from the Kwik Trip across the street.
When police realized that the corndogs left on the scene came from that gas station, they were able to watch surveillance footage from the gas station on Monday.
That's when they saw three people later identified as the suspects Brian Yonker, Miranda Lindner and Katie Kelly leave the Kwik Trip and walk in the direction of the church.
