When News 4 crews arrived at the home, which is located on a private gravel road on Rolling Hills Lane, a neighbor said they hadn’t seen Hodgkinson in months but that his wife still lived at the residence.

News 4's Lauren Trager uncovered Hodgkinson's most recent contact with law enforcement officers was in March, when he was reportedly doing target practice on his property with a high-powered rifle.

Around 11 a.m., FBI officials told Nagus more officers were on their way to the home.

A sign at the entrance to the property reads JTH Inspections. Hodgkinson is believed to have been a home inspector.
