    FL - Pluma Bell Sanford, 73, Fort Walton Baech, 15 Aug 1997


    An Okaloosa County Grand Jury has indicted a man for the death of a 73 year old woman in 1997.........

    DNA evidence is linking Harry Leach to the crime.

    Leach was a neighborhood repairman..........

    From June 2013:


    For nearly 16 years, Pluma Bell Sanford’s daughters hoped they would see the man responsible for their mother’s death sit in court. They wanted to hear a jury tell him he was guilty of capital murder...

    On June 16, after spending only a few months in jail, Harry Bernard Leach died, having never faced trial for the brutal murder of 73-year-old Sanford...

    Leach, who was 52, died of lung cancer just weeks away from his next court date. His death closed the Sanford case for good.
