Investigators search for evidence in 2011 slaying

The Associated Press - April 11, 2017 10:51 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is searching yards at two homes for evidence in the more than five-year-old slaying of a 19-year-old woman whose dismembered body parts were found in a duffel bag.
OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown says ground penetrating radar was being used Monday to search for evidence in the death of Carina Saunders.
Brown declined to say what type of evidence is being sought, but said the homes in northwest Oklahoma City are adjacent and were searched previously. She said only that “recent” tips led investigators back to the property and officials from the state medical examiner’s office and an archaeologist are on the scene.
Parts of Saunders’ body were discovered Oct. 13, 2011, behind a grocery store in the northwest Oklahoma City suburb of Bethany.
