From January 2013:


"I can't tell you how frustrating this has been," said Bobby Fisher's widow, Barbara Ann Fisher. Her husband died in 2005. "It killed my husband. All he wanted was answers. He wanted justice for Aunt Lottie and the other victims. I'm not sure we'll ever get that."

Shelby Police Chief Jeff Ledford, no relation to Lottie Ledford, said police were looking for evidence that would link Borders with the deaths of the two other women, but it's not clear they have found any.

Fisher has no doubt: She believes Borders killed all three women. "In my heart I know he did it," she said.


Donald Borders was sentenced to life in prison without parole Tuesday after being convicted of the 2003 rape and killing of 79-year-old Margaret Tessneer in Shelby...

Tessneer's body was discovered by her daughter and son-in-law in September of 2003. Borders wasn't arrested until 2009, when investigators used DNA to tie him to the crime.
