FBI Says Murder Victim Likely Visited Park

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An FBI witness says murdered nurse
Mindy Schloss was taken to a wooded area of Anchorage's Kincaid
Park before her body was found later in the Matanuska-Susitna
Borough.
Testimony continued Wednesday in an evidence hearing preceding
the trial of Joshua Wade, who is charged with killing Schloss in
2007.
The FBI says trained dogs picked up the scent of both Wade and
Schloss in the park.
Wade's attorneys are challenging evidence collected with help
from dogs.
They say a device used to gather scent for dogs is unreliable
and that the dogs could be influenced by handlers.
The dog scent evidence was used to support a search warrant for
Wade's house that turned up other important evidence. Wade's
attorneys say it should be excluded.
