Belker and Officer Anderson inspect inmate Joness television and inmate Johnsons CD;player and typewriter and find nothing unusual, but the antenna snaps off the television as Sgt.;Belker replaces it on the shelf. They inspect the inmates clothing and footwear and find nothing;unusual, although a sneaker falls into the cell toilet. They inspect a drawer full of commissary;snacks, opening five apparently unopened bags of potato chips in the process, and they;discover contraband cigarette papers inside one of the potato chip bags. Officer Anderson;continues the search by looking through a box of books and papers. Included in the hundreds;of pages of papers in the box is a sheet of paper with a crude drawing of what appears to be a;local industrial park and a prominent X drawn alongside one of the industrial buildings. Officer;Anderson asks Sgt. Belker if inmate Jones isnt the inmate charged with murdering the elderly;couple and burying their bodies in an industrial park. Sgt. Belker replies that he thinks he;is. Officer Anderson removes the sheet of paper from the box, folds it, and puts it in his pocket.;On his way home after the conclusion of his shift, Officer Anderson stops at the States;Attorneys Office and leaves the folded sheet of paper with his cousin, who is a Staff;Investigator, after explaining how and where he found it.
