The D.A. Investigator and Texas Ranger began to zero in on D'Nard Anderson. The Hearne native was living in Waco at the time. Waco PD brought him in.
According to reports, Brian Bancroft and Ranger Jim Huggins left the Robertson County courthouse to interview Anderson at the McLennan County Jail. Anderson wouldn't talk.
Another inmate at the Central Texas jail would. The Ranger's report shows Corey Chappell sought out the investigators and told them Derrick Bible and Dameon Laws were behind the murders.
With what must have seemed like a solid lead, Bancroft and Huggins scooped up Anderson and headed back to Franklin. When they got to Robertson County, Anderson decided he wanted to talk.
District Attorney John Paschall said, “He gave a confession to us and helped us identify defendant Laws and defendant Bible.”
Anderson, Paschall says, put himself behind the wheel of the getaway car.
Three weeks after the double homicide, investigators had successfully rounded up all three men. For cops, the crime was solved and the case was closed.
