Stamford police zone in on alleged racist caller
Stamford police won?t be able to use high-tech analysis in a racist voicemail case, but they may not need it. Police say hateful words were left on 17-year-old Candace Owen?s phone in February. The messages included racial slurs, profanities and remarks about Martin Luther King. Joseph Kennedy of the Stamford Police Department says the quality of the tape was not good enough to undergo testing by the FBI. He says there are several factors responsible for the poor quality. Some of these factors include the small number of words in the message, disguised voices and overlapping voices. Police say they arrested one Stamford High School student shortly after the incident. Investigators also say they have enough evidence to ask for arrest warrants for several suspects, including students from Stamford High School.
