Police Suspect Women of Forcing Way Into Apartment To Destroy Evidence

Anderson, Ind. (AP) -- Police in Indiana say three women who may have been attempting to destroy evidence in a murder case really got things wrong.

They are accused of forcing their way into an apartment and cutting what they apparently believed to be a blood stain from a rug.

But police say the stain wasn't blood. It was grape juice or Kool-Aid. And it was the wrong apartment.

A detective says the women told the person who lives in the apartment that they were there to collect DNA evidence.

All three were arrested and face preliminary charges of residential entry.

Police have charged a man with a murder committed Sunday night in a neighboring apartment.
