Wright Trial: Landfill Evidence Linked To Wright's Home

April 5, 2007, 10:36 AM by Lou Raguse

A crime scene technician for the Sioux Falls police department testified that much of the evidence found at the Sioux Falls landfill links Daphne Wright to the crime.

Wright is accused of killing and dismembering Darlene VanderGiesen.

Forensic chemist Jessica Lichty says when searchers found VanderGiesen's pelvis and upper legs, it was wrapped in duck-patterned bed sheets.  Wright's roommate Jacki Chesmore testified Tuesday she owns those bed sheets. The body parts wrapped in sheets were then placed in a black garbage bag. Lichty says the bag matches those found in Wright's garage.

A Walgreen's employee testified Wednesday she sold Wright a package of Hefty lawn bags on Feb. 3.

Searchers also found pieces orange carpet at the landfill near the body. Lichty says it matches the carpet found rolled up in Wright's garage.

When Lichty searched Wright's vehicle, she found a blood stain on the rear bumper. And Lichty says the passenger-side door appeared to be wiped down with a sponge.

Prosecutors believed Wright used that vehicle to dump VanderGiesen's body parts in a dumpster and a Minnesota ditch on Feb. 3.

Lichty also testified about blood stains covered by blue paint throughout Wright's basement.

The prosecution is still questioning Lichty.
