Peele is also facing “more charges,” the statement read. The grandmother of the child reportedly called the sheriff’s office Sunday morning after she found her granddaughter’s “window open... and a ransom note left on her bed.” The sheriff’s office, the FBI, the Secret Service, and the U.S. Army’s Criminal Investigation Division investigated the incident, and the child was reunited with her grandmother Sunday evening.
