Clothes, knife found could be linked to body in duffel bag

The Associated Press and The Oklahoman - April 21, 2017 2:27 pm

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation officials search through dirt and debris at a home in Oklahoma City.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Investigators have found clothing and a knife that could be linked to the 2011 death of a 19-year-old Oklahoma woman whose dismembered remains were found stuffed in a duffel bag.
The Oklahoman reports that Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents found the new evidence in Carina Saunders’ case while searching an Oklahoma City property based on a tip.
The search, which began April 11, uncovered a shirt, a windbreaker jacket, two slip-on sandals and a folding knife. The investigation continues.
Saunders’ remains were found inside the bag behind a grocery store in Oklahoma County on Oct. 13, 2011. Two men were charged in Saunders’ death, but the charges were dismissed. No other charges have been filed.
