WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – There has been another delay in the notorious “killer clown” case.
A judge has agreed to postpone Sheila Keen-Warren’s trial once again after new information emerged about Marlene Warren’s murder.
It is a 25-page dossier on clown sightings compiled by the original investigators of the case. Defense lawyers say the file has about “40 credible leads” that include names, addresses and phone numbers.
“Despite claims that she did due diligence in searching for this file, the state admitted that the ‘clown sighting file’ was in a box in her office,” defense attorneys said in a court filing.
