On Friday, we got the preliminary forensic analysis findings on the evidence from the searches. On Saturday, based on those forensics and other evidence, Detective Armstrong and I went to arrest the person we believe killed Kimberly Pace.
When we arrived at the suspect's residence, we got a surprise and things didn't turn out at all like we'd anticipated.
This update includes that preliminary forensics report on the evidence from the searches, plus an incident report about what happened when we tried to make the arrest, some evidence we found at the scene, and press coverage of the events.
