Sheriff: ‘No DNA’ found on shoe
Monday, December 02, 2013 2:54 PM

PAULDING – On Monday afternoon, Dec. 2, Paulding County Sheriff Jason Landers issued the following press release:


“In attempt to keep the citizens informed, I would like to report BCI&I’s finding in regards to ‘the shoe’ that was found in the old Paulding County Jail on Oct. 11, 2013. It was believed the shoe might have been missing evidence in relationship to a 1960 unsolved murder of Nancy Eagleson.

“The shoe was tested at BCI for potential biological evidence. The report this office recently received from BCI states ‘no DNA profile was obtained from the shoe.’ This investigation remains open.

“If anyone has information regarding this case, drug activity or any other crime, please contact the sheriff’s office at 419-399-3791. You can also leave information via Facebook by searching Facebook/Paulding County Sheriff’s Office. View our website at and leave an email for the sheriff. Or you may also leave an anonymous tip via the website by scrolling to the bottom of any page and clicking on ‘send us an anonymous tip.’”

Asked if BCI investigators were able determine anything else about the shoe, such as age, Landers responded, “When I submitted it they could only look for biological evidence and that’s all they were going to do.”
