BREAKING: DNA tests turn up POSITIVE for the remains of Elaina Steinfurth (Baby Elaina) in a detached garage in Toledo, Ohio. The house belongs to the family of Elaina’s mother’s ex-boyfriend Steven King.
Elaina’s mother, Angela Steinfurth, told police on June 2nd that Elaina disappeared from King’s house after she tucked her in for a nap.
Toledo police said last week that the garage was searched earlier in the investigation, but the remains were not found at the time. However, they noted that the garage was very difficult to search and they were not able to bring cadaver dogs inside.
Angela’s stepfather Richard Schiewe said he also participated in a search of the garage after Elaina was first reported missing and he believes the remains were placed there at a later date.
King and Angela have both been indicted on obstruction of justice charges for allegedly providing false information in the case. Both have pleaded not guilty.
So what’s REALLY going on here? You can bet your bottom dollar Nancy Grace is going to blast the hell out of Angela and Stephen, demagogue this, and perhaps we’ll have another lynch mob hysteria going on without knowing all of the facts. Be careful not to convict either Angela or King of anything prior to hearing this out — do NOT fall into the HLN sensationalism trap!
Obviously more to come on this in forthcoming days …
