Wake County investigators searching for the killer of a slain pregnant woman are focusing on her husband. Court documents made public yesterday cite the couple's financial problems and a "substantial" life insurance policy that Jason Young stood to benefit from upon her death.
Twenty-nine-year-old Michelle Young was five months pregnant. Young's sister found hercdead on November third in the couple's home on the outskirts of Raleigh. The Youngs' 2-year-old daughter Cassidy was at her mother's side, unharmed.
No one has been charged.
Investigators obtained a court order on November seventh requiring Jason Young to provide footprints and fingerprints, photographs, and samples of blood, saliva and hair.
The court order released yesterday says officials wanted to compare the material with footprints, skin cell evidence and other D-N-A evidence collected at the crime scene.
