Person of interest speaks out after his former home is excavated during Saunders' homicide investigation

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KWTV)- Kenny Richards' former home was excavated this week in connect to the Carina Saunders' 2011 homicide investigation.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is now waiting on forensic analysis to determine if the items recovered from the backyard of the home are connected to the gruesome murder of Carina Saunders. 

In a series of text messages, Richards said, "It [sic] all wrong...I told police everything I know."

Richards was identified as a person of interest early on in the investigation but he was never arrested for the crime.

"She [Saunders] was a friend of mine...I miss her, too!!" ... "I have nothing more to say!!" Richards did not say anything about OSBI spending three days digging up his former backyard in search of evidence.

A search warrant attached to the front door of the home revealed investigators were hoping to find Saunders' personal items were listed including shoes, socks, bra, underwear, belt, T-shirt, handbag, her wallet, or parts of her body that have been missing since she was found dismembered in a duffel bag in Bethany.

"We have found several items of interest but we cannot say definitely they have anything to do with the case," said OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown. "It could take several months to get any type of forensic analysis back."

The OSBI also has several new leads as a result of the exposure the excavation received this week.
