SAN FRANCISCO- Sheriff's officials say investigators have collected fingerprints and what they believe is DNA from the home where an 8-year-old Northern California girl was stabbed to death.

Calaveras County Sheriff's Capt. Jim Macedo tells the Modesto Bee authorities hope to have lab results on the evidence in a week.

Authorities have not identified a suspect in Saturday's stabbing death of Leila Fowler at her home in Valley Springs, a small town about 60 miles southeast of Sacramento.

They say Leila was found by her brother after he encountered a male intruder at the home. Authorities have only released a vague description of the suspect.

Leila's killing sparked a massive weekend manhunt, with authorities conducting a door-to-door search for the suspect.
