The homicide investigation by Missouri's Jackson County Sheriff's Department (abbreviated here "JCSD") into the October 23, 1997, death of Anastasia WitbolsFeugen went on for several years. Many reports were filed by investigating officers; many interviews were conducted. By the time the Jackson County Prosecutors Office took over the case, late in 2000, the file ran to well more than a thousand pages. The documentation here represents only a portion of that file. We have taken care to exclude JCSD reports that pursued false leads or that were fruitless attempts at information-gathering. What you see here are only the most substantive sources.
Our decision to present these documents categorically, rather than chronologically, should allow you to better piece together the sometimes confusing facts. Links to Google Maps have also been provided to familiarize you with the areas and distances involved in the case. If you prefer to begin with a concise overview, we recommend you read Byron's August 18, 2010, application for executive clemency and personal letter to Governor Jay Nixon.
