Dead girl's clothes found in man's house

The Associated Press

        MARION, Ohio — Seven-year-old Bobbie Jo Barry's shorts and underwear were found in an upstairs bedroom of a vacant house owned by the man charged in her kidnapping, rape and death.

        Other evidence pointing to Barry Satta, 38, was also found, according to Prosecutor Jim Slagle's filings in Marion County Common Pleas Court.

        Orange foam residue on the girl's body matched material found in the room, and hair similar to Mr. Satta's and those of two dogs who live at his Marion home was found on her body.

        Mr. Satta, a friend of Bobbie Jo's family, was arrested Aug. 28 and pleaded not guilty to two counts of aggravated murder and one count each of burglary, kidnapping and rape. He faces the death penalty if convicted.

        Bobbie Jo's body was found two days after she disappeared from her bedroom, in a sleeping bag marked with “Barry S.”

        Autopsy results showed the girl died of a broken neck.
