Jackson Co. Sheriff has suspects in woman's murder
(2008-03-28)
(WOUB) - The Jackson County Sheriff says there are several suspects in the death of a woman found murdered inside her Camba Road home Wednesday morning, including her husband.

Sheriff John Shasteen says Dave Evans Senior was supposed to be out of town but showed up to the scene of his wife Carol's murder in the afternoon.

He is one of several suspects right now in the case.

Shasteen says it originally appeared that 72-year old Carol Evans was beaten to death but an autopsy released yesterday indicates the cause of death to be strangulation.

Authorities believe she was killed sometime between 3 and 6 in the morning.

Her body was discovered around 10:45.

Shasteen says the doors to the house were and it isn't clear how someone got into the home.

Shasteen also says the upstairs of the house appeared to have been ransacked but he isn't sure if anything was taken.
