Burglars Leave Behind Possible DNA Evidence
The Cookeville police department today is investigating the burglary of a home on Willow Avenue, in which the burglars reportedly took a shower and used the bathroom while they were inside the home. And then used a towel to wipe off the fecal material. Police took that towel into evidence and have also gathered other information about the break-in. They say officers were dispatched to the location earlier this month, but found the area to be apparently secure. It was only after the resident returned from a trip that she discovered much of her home had been ransacked and vandalised.
