"Thomas Ford did not kill Dana Clair Edwards, and he doesn't know who did," said defense attorney Dick DeGuerin. Ford was arrested this morning for the January 1, 2009 murder of Edwards, with whom he'd had a serious romantic relationship. DeGuerin referred to the "cloud of suspicion" that has surrounded Ford almost since Edwards's death (which the Current wrote about in October 2009; see Missing Pieces) but said he doesn't know whether the police have investigated other suspects. SAPD told the Current last fall that they had eliminated other persons of interest, but Ford's previous attorney, Cecil Bain, alleged police set their sights on Ford early and exclusively.
