A man who is a person of interest in the Cassandra Gross case says he now needs a mental health evaluation after serving six months in prison as police continue their search for Gross.
The Tribune-Review reports that the request came from Dante Bertani, the defense attorney for Thomas Stanko, who said that his client has become emotional every time the two have met.
Stanko was originally placed in jail on probation violations connected with charges that came from a 2015 incident at a memorial service in a Unity cemetery.
Stanko is the ex-boyfriend of Gross, who has been missing since April. The judge did grant the mental health evaluation while Stanko remains in jail.
