Update Fowler Murder
Valley Springs, CA — Calaveras County Sheriff’s Officials report they do not plan on any more diving in the ponds next to the home where eight year old Leila Fowler was murdered. Dive recovery teams from Calaveras and Stanislaus Counties dove Sunday through Wednesday searching for evidence, but wouldn’t say exactly what they were looking for in the ponds. Last weekend investigators re-canvased the Rancho-Calaveras area to see if someone may have seen something or even the killer.
Sgt. Chris Hewitt says, “All of the information which is from over 300 separate residences has to be complied and put into a data base. It will be reviewed by our investigators that are assigned to follow up on tips and leads. They will figure out from there if there are any legitimate tips that we need to follow up on.”
Hewitt says it could take weeks before investigators have checked all the tips. There is still no suspect in the murder.
