Sword stolen from murder scene

February 28, 2011

The residence that was once the crime of a grisly mutilation was broken into Saturday.
Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid said Monday the reported break-in and larceny at 5209 Ruth Drive in Hickory is unrelated to the alleged murder and mutilation of Stephen Starr that occurred at the residence Feb. 14.
According to a Catawba County Sheriff's Office incident report, Starr's former residence and a vehicle on the property were broken into between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. The suspect took a Civil War replica sword valued at $50, as well as a pool stick with a leather carrying case, a riding lawn mower and a title to a 1995 Ford Ranger truck. The stolen property is valued at $1,120.
The incident report says sheriff's deputies know who the suspect is, but no corresponding arrest was provided with the report.
Starr's roommate, 19-year-old Michael Anderson, confessed to shooting Starr three times before taking an axe-splitter to the man's body. Anderson's next court appearance is scheduled for March 9.

I don't see the point in this. If anyone is going to steal, they should atleast be smart enough to steal more than $1,000. Anyone these days is more than likely going to get caught, with all the securty and new technology.
