Crider, Teri Dean-Morrison and Cheryl C. Crawford were charged with tampering with physical evidence several days after Anderson went missing.  Investigators allegedly found broken doors, windows, blood and other physical evidence that came back as belonging to Anderson, who was last seen at Dean-Morrison's home at 263 Akita Run near Hootentown on February 23rd.


When the trio was arrested near the Lake of the Ozarks on March 3rd detectives confiscated their cell phones which led authorities to a property owned by Earl Kearney, who is a former boyfriend of Dean-Morrison, on Highway OO near Reeds Spring.

Dean-Morrison and Crawford were charged with first-degree murder on March 27th after authorities found Anderson's remains, which sources say had been dismembered, in a pond on Kearney's property.

Buras was released from the Stone County jail after posting $15,000 bond, is scheduled to appear in court on April 17th for a disposition hearing. 
Crider, Dean-Morrison and Crawford remained jailed at this time.

Complete Probable Cause Statement Against Krystal Buras:

Stone County deputy Shawn Fields writes in the probable cause statement against Buras, "Eugene Crider owns a pickup truck that has been missing since the murder of Carl Anderson and has been actively sought. I had recent information that Krystal had been to Eugene Crider's truck and removed items of concern to Eugene Crider that were likely used at the site of the murder. I contacted Krystal Buras in the Sheriff's Office lobby and requested an interview with her and she agreed to do so. I allowed her to tell me what she wanted to say, and she did not provide any information about the truck or evidence removal until I confronted her. She stated the location of the truck and admitted she removed items from it to take to Texas."
