A grand jury is made up of 15 citizens.
"I want to assure the public this case has been worked well," Satterfield said, "There's a lot of complexities to it, and it continues to be a top priority. It's not forgotten, and it's not going to sit around and draw dust, either."

In a meeting with the media Monday afternoon, Butler County Sheriff Craig Murphys says he feels good his investigators were able to get the Adam Herrman case to this point.
Murphy says deputies transferred a two and half to three foot stack of papers in the Herrman investigation to the district attorney Friday.
The sheriff is not saying if he believes Adam is alive or dead. That will be up to District Attorney Jan Satterfield to say, he told reporters.
Murphys is hesitant to comment on what evidence Satterfield will have to consider when deciding whether to file charges against Adam's adoptive parents.
The Butler County Sheriff's Office has made no contact with the Herrman's since turning over the case Friday.
Murphy says the Herrman's have remained the major players in the investigation throughout.
When asked if the physical evidence found in the investigation included human remains, Murphy answering simply that no body parts were recovered.
He is not sure if any future searches are planned. Sheriff Murphy says that depends on what tips they receive.
And the tips are still trickling in. Murphy says his office received an e-mail Monday morning - the first tip in two to three weeks.
He says the e-mail came from a man out-of-state who crossed paths with someone in his travels. Murphy says the e-mail tells investigators the conversation with that stranger didn't mean much till he learned of the Adam Herrman case from the national media.
Murphy says investigators are working to contact that person to gather more information.
