DNA tests determined unusable in woman's death


Bonham – DNA tests conducted on the clothes of a Bonham resident who was killed in 2002 have been determined unusable.

The Paris News reports the investigation into Jennifer Harris-Holman's death is ongoing and active but more evidence is needed.

Harris-Holman's nude body was found in the Red River a few days after she was apparently strangled and dumped their nearly eight years ago.

The case grew cold, with few leads and little evidence, until it was revived last year when the Fannin County Sheriff's Department sent in clothing to have it retested for DNA. The clothing was a hoped-for link to her killer.

But Sheriff Kenneth Moore said this week the department didn't get any additional information from the test.
