In today's Joplin Globe, reporter Debbie Robinson offers a timeline on the death of nine-year-old Rowan Ford of Stella.
Included in the article:
-Both of the accused killers, Rowan's stepfather David Spears, 24, and Chris Collings, 32, admitted to authorities that they committed the murder.
-Cadaver dogs hit on Spears' mother's car, which he borrowed when he went to look for his stepdaughter.
-Information is provided about the third man, referred to only as "Nathan," who was with Spears that night:
During the search for Rowan, Copeland said, David Spears rode around with another man.
“He (Spears) was pointing out to this man where would be good places to put a body,” Copeland said.
One of those places was the sinkhole in McDonald County where the girl’s body ultimately was found, the sheriff said.
