ALPINE, TX (KWES) -

A grand jury in Alpine is done hearing evidence in the missing Sul Ross State University student, Zuzu Verk’s case. Now, we're just waiting to see if there will be any indictments that come from the proceedings.

The Brewster County District Clerk said that by the end of business day, nothing new had been filed in connection to the case.

After checking with the Alpine Police Department multiple times throughout the day, they were not able to tell us if the grand jury proceedings will help their current investigation finding Verk.

Several sources inside the courthouse confirmed Tuesday, the grand jury finished meeting and heard evidence from the case.

After District Attorney Rod Ponton recused himself from the investigation, Geoff Barr of the Texas Attorney General’s office is leading the investigation.

We contacted Barr’s office multiple times, we were told there is no information being made public yet and there is no word on any possible indictments.

Zuzu's boyfriend, Robert Fabian, remains the sole suspect in this case. We did reach out to his attorney for some insight from the court proceedings but have not heard back yet.

Alpine police said no matter what the outcome of the grand jury proceedings are, they do not have plans to stop searching for Zuzu until she is found.
