The Barry County sheriff has indicated more arrests may be made in connection with the brutal rape and murder of nine-year-old Rowan Ford of Stella, according to a report on KSN's 6 p.m. newscast.
Rowan's body was found Friday morning in a cave in McDonald County.
The KSN report indicated authorities believe Chris Collings, 32, Wheaton, took Rowan to Barry County and raped her, and then when Rowan's stepfather, David Spears arrived, he also raped her and killed her. Collings allegedly dumped the body.
It would appear that further arrests might possibly include people who were involved in covering up the crime.
