Update: Fowler Murder Investigation
Valley Springs, CA — Calaveras County and Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Dive recovery teams will resume their SCUBA dive operation of a small pond.
Sgt. Chris Hewitt says, “A third dive operation has been planned for tomorrow at the same pond crews searched today. I can’t comment on what evidence they are looking for at this time.”

There is still no suspect. The Sheriff’s Office remains optimistic that they will find the culprit.
