GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) An agent for the Kansas Bureau of Investigation has described for jurors the condition of the badly burned body of a 14-year-old cheerleader found at an asphalt plant.
KBI agent Cory Latham explained Friday some of the crime scene photos shown at the trial of Adam Longoria. The agent said that a body curls up when it is burned. He said charred pieces of what appeared to be duct tape was found across her mouth and nose. The body appeared to have been fully clothed when it was burned.
KWCH-TV reports that an employee of the asphalt plant testified Friday that he found what initially appeared to be a mannequin with flies buzzing around it. He described it as very surreal, saying the body had no humanlike features.
