Briefs: Pasco investigators find body in burned Holiday home


Investigators find body in burned house

The Sheriff's Office is investigating a death after finding a body Wednesday in a house that burned down early Tuesday. The fire occurred about 3 a.m. Tuesday at 4635 Darlington Road. Firefighters put out the fire, did a search of the home and found no one inside, Sheriff's Office spokesman Doug Tobin said. But Wednesday afternoon, the Sheriff's Office received an anonymous call that led investigators back to the house, where they discovered the body. Tobin would not say exactly where the body was found or what condition it was in. "Those are things we need to keep close to our investigation," Tobin said. The death is classified as suspicious. The medical examiner arrived Wednesday night to help determine the cause of death and identify the person. Tobin said a 46-year-old woman named Theresa Jones was renting the home. She has not been seen since Monday. Anyone with information about Jones' whereabouts should call the Sheriff's Office at 1-800-854-2862.

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.
