Another day, another press conference without definitive answers or an arrest in the murder of 8-year-old Leila Fowler.

Calaveras County Sheriff Gary Kuntz says it could take two weeks to get DNA results back from he bags of evidence removed from he Fowler home on Rippon Rd. Thursday.

Kuntz says the now discredited neighbor who claims to have seen a man with scraggly hair exit the Fowler home after Leila was stabbed to death was only trying to help.

And despite backing off her description, they are sticking with the one from Leila’s 12-year-old brother. Though, he hasn’t sat down with a sketch artist yet either.

As far as where Leila’s murderer might be, Kuntz didn’t seem to have a direct answer. He hopes to have answers soon.
