According to the same report, witnesses recognized a person who matched Sweet’s appearance outside their RV at the time of the shooting. Video surveillance, confirming the sighting, showed a male matching the same description. The male in the video was wearing a green colored hoodie that was later recovered from Sweet’s residence in Phelps County after a search warrant was executed by the Phelps County Sheriff Department.
