According to the probable cause statement, cell phone records allegedly led authorities to obtain a search warrant for Earl Kearney's property at 55 Kearney Lane off of Highway OO near Kimberling City on March 19th.
"By examining the phone records and cross referencing the cell phone towers, it led Detectives to a property located on Highway OO in Stone County which belongs to Earl Kearney, a known associate of Teri Dean. The phone records showed that one or more of the three suspects spent a considerable amount of time at the property of Earl Kearney on the evening of Thursday, February 23rd and Friday, February 24th."
During a second search of Kearney's, who is a former boyfriend of Dean-Morrison's, property on March 21st authorities found human remains, which sources say were dismembered. The remains were sent to the Missouri Highway Patrol crime lab and confirmed as Anderson's late on March 23rd.
