    When the 911 call came in last Tuesday, police thought they were responding to a shooting. After officers got to the house on Ferrand Drive, Janet Abaroa's husband, Raven, told them his wife was upstairs hurt.

    Authorities found the 25-year-old mother on the bedroom floor. According to police, she had been stabbed in the chest. Court papers show there were large amounts of blood on the floor, on the wall and near a side door of the home.

    Investigators stayed on the scene nearly 24 hours collecting evidence. Some of the items seized include a block of knives, financial items, including a checkbook and loan papers and a cell phone. Police searched the couple's Dodge Durango, where they found a knife and a pawn shop ticket.

    Authorities also collected soil samples from the SUV and took swabbings from various locations in the house. They also took the clothes Abaroa's husband had been wearing.

    Looks like the knife in the truck is not the same knife he had in the "Merry Christmas" video. I looked up "Bear Claw," and they are pretty expensive hand-made knives. Maybe he had "upgraded."

    Ok I have been trying to read all th eposts on this case and get caught up...Phew what a job. This is a very sad case and I hope that it will be solved soon. But I have a few questions:

    I thought I read somewhere that it was 2 friends......maybe co workers that called the police because they went to her house after she didn't respond to an email???? Is that true??? Please someone clarify did the husband call 911 or the friends or did they both and who was there when the police arrived after the 911 call? Thanks in advance for your help. I am sure this info has been posted some where here but I have been reading now for a few hours and I find conflicting reports.

    There are two separate versions of the events being reported by the media that are vastly different. No one has been able to reconcile these vastly different accounts of what occured.

    Interestingly, LE has not released direct information on who actually made the 911 call, just that they received one.

    This is the first I've seen of the total amount of change found. Ten dollars is quite a bit of change, even if its all in quarters. This has got me extremely curious.

    We've speculated that it might be for payphones ... you know those pesky cell phone records ...

    That's a reasonable thought. When I first heard about the silver change found, I was thinking collected change from purchases that could have fallen out of someone's pocket. This goes pretty far beyond that.

    Someone carrying that much change would be pretty weighted down and noisy . . . I wonder if the creek was used as a getaway path to hide tracks; maybe not just a place to wash up.

    Thanks for the info Golfmom! I did read the search warrant and the officer states that when he arrived at the home the husband WAS there....so if that is stated in the search warrant would at mean it was a FACT that the husband was there when they arrived and go against the media reports that when police arrived the husband was not there? I know that still doesn't clear up who actualy placed the 911 call..............I really want to know who actually placed that call...it is driving me nutz. I wonder if there two calls placed to 911 one by the friend/co-worker and one by the husband??????? Hmmmmm....

    Edit because I was wrong after going back and re reading the search warrant sorry everyone.....

    I'm not sure, but another thing that's bothered me is Raven's sister writing the whole poopy-head thing to him just before Janet's body was discovered. Was he chatting away with her and she logged on to send him a special message? Creeps me for sure.

    I agree, that bugs me too. Particularly the taunting way she drew out his name.

    Information regarding the second search.

    http://www.newsobserver.com/news/dur...-8746832c.html

    DURHAM -- Police say a Durham woman found dead in her home last week was stabbed, and a search warrant indicates that investigators wanted to further examine the family's SUV to determine the vehicle's "relationship" to the homicide.
    .......
    Police have named no suspects, and no charges have been filed.

    "Nothing in the investigation so far indicates that the homicide was a random act," Kammie Michael, a Durham Police Department spokeswoman, said in a news release Monday. "Investigators are still looking into several possibilities."

    On Thursday, Durham police Cpl. B.E. Bradley was granted to a warrant to search a 1998 Dodge Durango belonging to Raven Abaroa, the victim's husband. The warrant indicates that the day before, police had searched the SUV and the home the couple rented in western Durham off Sparger Road.

    After police interviewed Raven Abaroa earlier on Thursday, they asked a judge for permission to search the vehicle for evidence a second time, the warrant said.

    "Information disclosed during that interview has suggested that further scientific testing is needed to determine the relationship of the vehicle to the homicide," the warrant said.
