PAW PAW (AP) — Illinois State Police say they are looking for a man who they believe killed an eastern Illinois woman at a highway rest stop on Interstate 39.

Police have identified Terence Doddy, 36, of Rockford, as a person of interest.

Police believe the attacker may be driving Bargman's gray 2013 Nissan Altima with license plates that read BARGMN 2.

Police said in a news release that 44-year-old Tonya D. Bargman of Monticello was found at the Willow Creek rest stop on I-39 in northern Illinois about 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Surveillance video showed a man attacking her as she left a restroom at the rest stop.

The rest stop is just outside the small town of Paw Paw in Lee County. Monticello is 20 miles west of Champaign.
