Sole Suspect In Short Family Killing Says He's Innocent
Gary Bowman says he didn't do it

STONEVILLE, N.C. --
It's been a frustrating two years for police who have been unable to charge anyone with killing 9-year-old Jennifer Short and her parents.
It's been equally intense for Gary Bowman, the one person named as a suspect, who swears he never met the Virginia family and would never have harmed them.
"This will hang over me for the rest of my life, unless they find the person who did it," Bowman told the News & Record of Greensboro
in a recent interview published Sunday.
Michael and Mary Short, were found shot to death in their home in Bassett, Va., on Aug. 15, 2002. The phone lines at their home had been cut, and their daughter was missing.
Six weeks later, Jennifer's bones were found in Rockingham County, about 30 miles south of Bassett.
Garrison "Storm" Bowman came under suspicion after his former landlord in Rockingham County told investigators he heard Bowman talking about killing an unidentified mobile-home mover with whom he had been quarreling.
Michael Short owned a mobile-home moving company.
