DNA Testing Underway in Suspect's Pets in Crowder Case

NOVEMBER 20, 2006 - Posted at 7:56 a.m. CST

 

ARKANSAS CITY, Ark. (AP) - A prosecutor hopes a murder suspect's pets -- or at least samples of their fur -- will tell tales on the suspect. An investigator has delivered samples from the pets of Kenneth Ray Osburn to a lab in California to see if a DNA analysis will link the animals to pet hair found on the body of 17-year-old Casey Crowder of Pine Bluff.

Crowder was killed on August 27 after she disappeared after running out of gas along U.S. 65. Her body was found on September 2. The 46-year-old Osburn is charged with capital murder and kidnapping in the case.

Prosecutor Thomas Deen says Osburn owned several dogs and Deen said he wants the tests to see if the hair found on Crowder's clothing came from Osburn's animals.
