New Information on Bunker Where 5-Year-Old Alabama Boy Is Being Held Hostage

Elizabeth Prann reported new details on the hostage situation in Midland City, Alabama. According to Police Chief James Arrington, the bunker where the 5-year-old boy is being held is 4-feet wide, 6-feet long, and 8-feet deep . The sheriff doesn’t know what kind of supplies suspect Jimmy Lee Dykes has in the bunker, but he did confirm that authorities are communicating with the suspect through a PVC pipe.

The officer confirmed that the boy is safe and getting medication. His family is holding up, although the situation is obviously incredibly tense.

Arrington didn’t provide any information about demands the suspect is making.
