Man Charged with Abducted Woman's Murder lead police (unborn victim)
Man charged with abducted woman's murder leads police to body

Authorities say the man arrested today in the kidnapping and slaying of Tamara Dunstan admitted to the crime and led police to her body.


Mr. Burke, who according to one of his relatives knew the Cundey family, was taken in for questioning Saturday and was later charged today with murder and kidnapping. Mr. Craig said Mr. Burke was located Saturday based on a lead police received concerning a suspicious truck that had been spotted in the area of Mrs. Dunstan's abduction Thursday at her mother's house on Kipling Drive.

Police have said that abduction occurred during a burglary at the house.


Edgefield County Sheriff Adel Dobey said Richmond County investigators and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents were led by Mr. Burke to a shallow grave dug just a few feet off a dirt road on U.S. Forest Service land in an isolated portion of western Edgefield County.


Mr. Craig said a decision should come sometime this week on whether the death penalty will be sought. That should come as soon as the jurisdiction of where the case will be tried is determined.

He said he also plans to meet with the U.S. attorney general in the next two days to discuss whether state and federal charges could stem from the case based on an unborn victims of violence act, which was passed by Congress and signed by President Bush earlier this month.


This is a friend of a friend of a friend of ours.

I'm sure Ashcroft will be happy to get his hands on this one!
