Fingerprints Collected in Calif. Girl's Slaying
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Sheriff's officials say investigators have collected fingerprints and what they believe is DNA from the home where an 8-year-old Northern California girl was stabbed to death.
Calaveras County Sheriff's Capt. Jim Macedo tells the Modesto Bee authorities hope to have lab results on the evidence in a week.
Authorities have not identified a suspect in Saturday's stabbing death of Leila Fowler at her home in Valley Springs, a small town about 60 miles southeast of Sacramento.
They say Leila was found by her brother after he encountered a male intruder at the home. Authorities have only released a vague description of the suspect.
Leila's killing sparked a massive weekend manhunt, with authorities conducting a door-to-door search for the suspect.
