Overton Fire Investigation File Returned

   Thursday, Overton's Police Chief claimed an arson investigation was jeopardized because one of his former officers took off with the case file. Friday, former officer James Clark says that file has been returned to chief Ed Williams.

   Clark says he accidentally moved with the file still in his briefcase.

   The investigation into Clark leaving with the file in tow centers around a May 12th fire at the home of Lillian Casey where her 19-month old baby died. Toxicology results revealed Casey was intoxicated at the time of the fire. Chief Williams says he expects to file criminally negligent homicide charges against her.

   Thursday, Chief Williams also was pursuing charges against his former investigator. Friday, the chief did not return our phone calls to confirm the arson file was back in the department's possession.
