VALLEY SPRINGS, CA - Despite saying Monday an arrest would happen in the "near future" in the Leila Fowler murder, no break was announced Tuesday. In fact, it was the first day in several that the Calaveras County Sheriff's Department didn't hold a media briefing.
Eight-year-old Leila was found stabbed to death in her Valley Springs home on April 27. Her 12-year-old brother, also home at the time, told police the intruder was a white or Hispanic man, 6 feet tall and muscular, with long, gray hair.
At the Fowler home Tuesday, a large rental truck was parked in the driveway, and a number of items were removed from the house and loaded in the truck.
Also Tuesday, at a nearby pond, divers were in the water, continuing the search for evidence.
One other new element of the investigation involved dogs from the FBI brought to the scene. The dogs are trained to follow blood.
