Murder victim encased in concrete

Police in Cocoa, Florida are investigating a gruesome murder after the discovery of a bizarre grave.

They say college student Darice Knowles, 22, met her killer within days of arriving here from the Bahamas. According to a source who saw her body, Knowles was trapped inside a large lump of concrete-- her head, hands and legs left exposed, her mouth and wrists bound with duct tape.

Police think they know who committed the 2006 murder.


A University of Florida anthropology lab will examine the bones and attempt to recover DNA of the murderer.
