Thursday, 17 January 2008Investigators say they may have recovered weapon used to kill 20-year-old pregnant MarineFrom Daily Herald news services


JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Authorities investigating the death of a 20-year-old pregnant Marine said Thursday they may have recovered the weapon used to kill her.

A witness gave investigators an item that could have been used to kill Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach, said Onslow County sheriff's Captain Rick Sutherland. He declined to say who gave police the item last weekend and what it was.

Marines Wife Waited to Report Death

Quote:
The wife of the key suspect in the slaying of a 20-year-old pregnant Marine waited almost 24 hours after learning of the woman's death to go to authorities, according to court documents released Thursday.

The sheriff's affidavit, which details the account Cpl. Cesar Armando Laurean's wife gave to detectives, does not provide an explanation for why she waited. Police have consistently described her as a cooperating witness, and she does not face charges.
Laurean told his wife, Christina, while driving to their attorney's office last Thursday that Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach visited the couple's home on Dec. 15, demanded money and told him she planned to leave the area, according the affidavit.

Lauterbach had accused Laurean of rape in May, a charged he denied to military investigators.

Laurean asked his wife whether she was "with him on this" as they headed to the attorney's office, according to the affidavit. She responded: "I do not know. Is there anything you have not told me?" That's when Laurean told her what had happened, the affidavit states.

He told his wife that he and Lauterbach purchased a bus ticket for her to El Paso, Texas, but that she later returned to their home and they began to argue. He claimed Lauterbach produced a knife and slit her own throat. Laurean also told his wife he then buried Lauterbach in the woods near their home, the documents state.

Jacksonville — Onslow County authorities said Friday they do not believe Christina Laurean was at her house when a pregnant Marine was killed. They believe she was at a Christmas party during that time.

Laurean’s husband, Camp Lejeune Marine Cpl. Cesar Laurean, is wanted in the death of Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach.

Sheriff's officials said Thursday that investigators believe Cesar Laurean killed Lauterbach, 20, on Dec. 14. Authorities described Christina Laurean as a cooperating witness and said they have no plans to charge her.

Surveillance videos obtained by "America's Most Wanted" show the suspected killer of a pregnant Marine using the victim's ATM card and buying paint and shovels believed to have been employed in an effort to conceal the crime, FOX News has learned.

Interview w/FBI re: Manhunt

Greta's interview w/Special Agent Kolko - 01/17/08

"KOLKO: Well, a couple things happened. As soon as we thought he was gone, the FBI got the warrant. And what we do is we notify as many of the police as we can through our notification systems. And at the same time, we start notifying the public, OK, via the posters, some press releases, 1-800-CALL-FBI line, and then we started to get some tips, which helped us track him.

Some information, intelligence, led us to believe that he may have worked his way to Texas and possibly gone into Mexico. But one of the issues there is he's already proven to us that he wants to be a fugitive. So even though we think he might have gone into Mexico, that doesn't he's staying there. So it's still critical that people in the States are on the lookout for him."

The surveillance video from December 16 shows Cpl. Laurean shopping at a Lowe's home improvement store two days after Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach is believed to have been killed, said Onslow County Sheriff's spokesman Rick Sutherland.

CNN obtained the video from the television program "America's Most Wanted" and broadcast it during Friday night's "Anderson Cooper 360."

In the video, Laurean is seen with another person described by "America's Most Wanted" as "a friend." Sutherland said that investigators believe Laurean was with someone at the store, but had no other comment.

The video shows Laurean purchasing supplies, paint, concrete blocks and a wheelbarrow.

Great article full of details about neighbors:

http://www.daytondailynews.com/n/con...2008maria.html

On Christmas Eve, the Laureans lit a bonfire in their backyard. The next day, the cars lined up on the street as they entertained friends and fellow Marines. They welcomed friends to their home again on New Year's Day.
Life on Meadow Trail continued to appear normal right up until the morning of Jan. 11, when police crews descended on the house just before the world learned that a pregnant Maria Lauterbach was killed and buried in Laurean's backyard fire pit, and that he was gone.
The night before, the Alanders saw their next-door neighbors sitting on their front porch. She didn't think much of it at the time, but Wanda said she noticed Cesar kept walking into the backyard.
