Dallas Man Suspected of Murdering Canton Woman Returns to East Texas

Canton Police say 49-year old Sharon Ragland has not been seen since last Tuesday, when she left her son's house. Sharon's estranged husband, Barry Steven Ragland, was transferred Monday night from a jail in Desoto, Texas, to the Canton Police Department where he was arraigned.

Ragland, who police say had a history of domestic violence; was then taken to the Van Zandt County Jail.

  Authorities say Ragland has been working as a carpenter-trainee in the Dallas Metro.

  Though a body has not been found, police think blood, found in Sharon Ragland's home and Barry Raglan's truck indicates foul play. "I believe there's been a crime committed," said Chief David Hammonds with the Canton Police Department. "I believe we have the guy that committed it arrested."

  Earlier Monday, Cadaver Dogs from the F.B.I. searched around Lake Canton for Sharon Ragland's body. DPS divers scoured the lake's shoreline looking for clues.

But after several hours, the divers and dogs came up with no new evidence.
