The three teens who dropped off Lehrkamp signed in with the emergency room but then left before the police arrived.
Police said they did not see any signs of physical injury, but said they saw spray paint on Lehrkamp’s body.
Then on Wednesday, detectives searched a home on St. Simons Island where the incident occurred and they recovered several pieces of evidence from the home.
On Sunday, detectives said they interviewed Lehrkamp at the hospital. Police said Lehrkamp was alert and conscious and gave a statement to police about what happened to him.
