Canton-Stark County crime lab director Bob Budgake says the increased work load is causing longer wait times for test results for other investigations.
Budgake says the lab’s eight staff members are working overtime and weekends to process evidence from the Jessie Davis case, two other recent murders and other investigations.
Davis’ body and the body of her unborn daughter were found June 23rd in neighboring Summit County.
Budgake says only that “forensic evidence of value” was recovered during searches of the homes of Davis, Bobby Cutts Junior and an accused accomplice of Cutts.
