Police look at phone, computer in murder case

Investigators are examining a suspect's electronics devices in connection with a Spring Valley girl's murder.

Richard A. Henderson, 26, of Standard, is charged with hiding the Jan. 24 murder of Diamond Bradley, but not with the murder itself. Nonetheless, police have said they believe Henderson murdered Bradley. Henderson was arrested Feb. 5 and remains in jail, needing $100,000 cash to make bond.

Police have said Henderson met the 16-year-old Bradley online, then drove to her home and picked her up the morning of Jan. 24. Henderson then drove to 850 North Road in Putnam County, a few miles from Standard, where the two got into a fight, with Henderson stabbing the girl to death and leaving her body along the road.

Bradley's family reported her missing the night of Jan. 24; her body was found three days later.

At a court hearing Thursday, Henderson's attorney, Public Defender Roger Bolin, noted investigators are looking at Henderson's computer and cellphone, which Bolin wants kept available for his own possible examination.

Bolin also said he wants copies of all "field notes" written by any of the many officers involved in the case. There were at least 15 police agencies involved.

The next hearing is Thursday, March 15.
