The testing of unidentified DNA found on Leila Fowler is taking longer than expected and as a result the start of trial scheduled for May 18th, 2015 was pushed back to August 5th.

Here is a link to USA Today’s coverage of the latest developments in the Leila Fowler murder. The facts seem to contradict the inside sources so often cited on the local social media sites.

Two bloody bodies were found in a home in West Point, CA in the last 24 hours not too far from the Leila Fowler murder. Details are very sketchy at this point, but one of the victims appears to have survived. Whether this is related to the Fowler case remains to be seen.
