Fowler Murder Investigation Setback

Fowler Murder Investigation Setback

Calaveras County Sheriff's deputies say the second witness in the murder investigation of an eight-year-old girl is now recanting her previous statements about a man she claimed to have seen running away from the murder scene. Calaveras County Sheriff's Sergeant Chris Hewitt also says the witness is refusing to provide a suspect description to a police sketch artist.

Sergeant Hewitt adds that the witness had told authorities she saw a person outside the home of stabbing victim Leila Fowler who matched the description of an intruder who Leila's 12-year-old brother said broke into their home.

Authorities also have now determined there is no connection between an attempted kidnapping in Placerville and the Fowler case in Valley Springs.
