Illinois State Police are searching for a Rockford man wanted in connection with the murders of two people.

Police say Terence Doddy, 36, of Rockford is a person of interest in the murders. One occurred on Tuesday at a Willow Creek Rest Stop near Paw, Paw on Interstate 39. That victim has been identified as 44 year-old Tonya D. Bargman of Monticello

An attendant at the rest stop found Bargman dead in a restroom at around 8:30 p.m. Surveillance video shows Bargman was attacked by a man as she left the restroom.

Police say Doddy left the rest area in Bargman’s gray 2013 Nissan Altima with an Illinois license plate of BARGMN 2.

He is also wanted for a murder in Rockford on Monday.

Police want everyone watching to use caution when visiting rest stops, as many will be traveling this holiday weekend. If you see Doddy, call 911.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact 911 or the ISP Zone 2 office at 815 632-4010. 

Law enforcement officials are also urging the public to take the necessary safety precautions when visiting rest stop areas.
