“That's basically the end of their involvement in the case,” Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer with the BSPD, said. “They come in, process the scene and then leave. Now the evidence has been sent to the medical examiner's office in Tarrant County and is in the hands of the pathologists.”

Unfortunately, there's no way to know how long it will take to receive results, Everett said.
