Carl Anderson

Authorities say Krystal Buras, of Spring, Texas,  removed several items they believe are connected to the Highlandville man's murder from her boyfriend, Gene Crider's truck.  Law enforcers had been actively searching for Crider's truck since he, Teri Dean-Morrison and Cheryl Crawford were charged with Anderson's murder last March.

Buras' 2004 Toyota Solara was seized and searched when she appeared at the Stone County jail to visit Crider in April.  Inside the vehicle authorities found 3 cell phones, miscellaneous letters and photo's from Gene Crider, 2 pair of work gloves a shovel and  hoe, boots, a respirator, tennis shoes and a Rawlings bat, that could possibly be the murder weapon.

Dean-Morrison, Crider and Crawford are due back in court on Septemeber 12th.

Buras formally entered a plea of not guilty and is scheduled to reappear in court on November 14th.

Yes. COV motions were sustained (granted) for Dean-Morrison and Crawford. It appears that Dean-Morrison's trial will be heard in Jasper County and Crawford's will likely be held in Laclede County.

Crider's motion was delayed until November 14th.
