Calaveras County Sheriff's Department Update on Leila Fowler Tragedy

Valley Springs, CA...The search for a suspect in this case has continued overnight and through the day today. Overnight Sheriff’s Detectives and members of the California DOJ Bureau of Forensic Services executed a Search Warrant at the home where the homicide occurred. Evidence was collected at the scene including fingerprints and what investigators believe is DNA. At this same time Detectives were conducting follow up interviews with witnesses and family members...

Members of the Calaveras County Search & Rescue Team assisted in an area search for evidence. Also at this same time, teams comprised of both uniform and plain clothes deputies, officers and agents were conducting wide spread searches and following up on in progress tips and leads.

There is no specific suspect at this time.

There have been in excess of 100 members of the law enforcement community working on this case.

The Sheriff’s Office has been in touch with the local school district. We have notified the district about this case and the circumstances surrounding the reports.

The Sheriff’s Office will have an increased and very visible presence at both school bus stops and the local schools on Monday April 29th.

The victim in this case is Leila Fowler who was 8 years old. An autopsy will be conducted tomorrow Monday April 29, 2013.

Editor's Note: This is the bulk of what was discussed at the Press Conference. Instead of updating the previous post we thought it was better to post it new in it's entirety. For Leila's family and friends if there is anything you would like for us to post or help get the word out on just send it to From all of us at our thoughts and prayers to all of those affected by this senseless tragedy
