    Carpet taken in Nevaeh slaying case
    Neighbors say fibers were under girl's nails
    <snipped>
    July 16, 2009
    The search for 5-year-old Nevaeh Buchanan's killer continues, as neighbors revealed Wednesday that investigators snipped pieces of carpet from a nearby apartment last week to see if fibers match those found under the girl's fingernails.

    Aaron Baker said Wednesday that officers cut out a piece of the tan carpet from the apartment where his 8-year-old son, Austin, played with Nevaeh just hours before the little girl disappeared.

    "That way they had something to run a test on," he said from the apartment across the hall and one floor up from the Buchanans' apartment.

    He said the same carpet covers the floors in the apartment Nevaeh shared with her mother, Jennifer Buchanan, and her grandmother, Sherry Buchanan, who was the girl's legal guardian because her mother was on probation for criminal problems.

    Now relatives are waiting to hear whether she was molested, said Shaun Lawson, Jennifer Buchanan's cousin.

    Nevaeh investigators probe carpet fibers
    Samples removed from apartment where slain girl lived
    Thursday, July 16, 2009
    <snipped>
    Investigators in the Nevaeh Buchanan murder case are focusing on carpet fibers taken from the slain 5-year-old's apartment to see if they match fibers found on her body, neighbors and relatives said Wednesday.

    Brittany Green, who lives in the Charlotte Arms Apartments, where Nevaeh lived, said police have been in and out of the complex in recent weeks gathering evidence, including swatches of brown carpet.

    "They took pieces of carpet from the apartment (Tuesday), I think," said Green, 21. "I see detectives coming in and out of the building all the time. One time they were carrying big brown bags out of here."

    Nevaeh's autopsy revealed that carpet fibers were found under her fingernails, or on another part of her body, said her second cousin, Shawn Lawson, who said he spoke with police when they revealed the autopsy's results to the Buchanan family.

    "The police told us they found carpet fibers," Lawson said. He confirmed that investigators took carpet samples from the girl's apartment.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Jennifer Buchanan is "a prisoner in her own home," hiding not only from the news crews, which have been camped out in front of her apartment for the past two days, but from people who think she had something to do with her daughter's murder.

    Otherwise, investigators have been tight-lipped about the case, although Shawn Lawson said he understood why police have been reluctant to speak.

    "They don't want to let the suspect know about their investigation," he said. "We know they have to hold their tongues. There's information they don't want out there."

    Sherry Buchanan, Nevaeh's grandmother, said she talked to Sheriff Tilman Crutchfield on Wednesday, and he said there was "stuff they want to keep secret."

    She said her daughter, Jennifer, is cooperating with police.

    Carpet Fibers Focus In Nevaeh Case
    Posted: Thursday, 16 July 2009 4:55AM
    <snipped>
    Carpet fibers are now the focus of investigators in the Nevaeh Buchanan murder case.

    Those fibers were taken from the five-year-old's apartment to see if they match fibers found on her body. One tenant who lives in the Charlotte Arms Apartments near Monroe, where Nevaeh lived, said police had been spotted in the area frequently in recent days to gather evidence.

    Some of the evidence reportedly included swatches of brown carpet. This week, an autopsy revealed that carpet fibers were found under Nevaeh's fingernails and elsewhere on her body.

    <snipped>
    A month after she was found... Navaeh Buchanan's autopsy results are released... The details and reaction of the news are tonight's big story. The shock continues tonight for members of the Monroe County Family. They are still reeling from the latest news regarding the murder of their loved one. My TV 20's Dave Leval tells us how little Navaeh Buchanan died.

    Monroe Sheriff's invetigators tell us the killer pressed her face into the dirt. Navaeh died after she inhaled dirt.

    Shaun Lawson/Navaeh's Cousin
    "Makes it hard to sleep at night, when you get that image in your mind. Close your eyes, go to sleep, that's all you see."

    Navaeh's killer remains on the loose. Meanwhile, more memorials are placed near the site where her body was found. They honor a child taken from her friends and loved ones far too soon. In Monroe, Dave Leval, My TV 20 News at 10.

    Relatives tell us they don't know where Navaeh's mother is staying. But, they did talk to her yesterday. Investigators have followed up on more than 12 hundred tips since Navaeh's disappearance and murder. You're asked to call Monroe County Deputies with any information.
