VALLEY SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) - Calaveras County sheriff's officials say investigators will be knocking on the doors of hundreds of homes as they try to find possible witnesses in their search for the killer of 8-year-old girl Leila Fowler.

A sheriff's spokesman says investigators will canvass homes in the Valley Springs and Rancho Calaveras area Saturday in the hopes of locating new witnesses or refreshing the memories of possible new witnesses.

Sgt. Chris Hewitt says investigators expect to find more people at their homes to answer questions on a Saturday.

Leila was found stabbed in her family home last Saturday. Her 12-year-old brother described his sister's killer as being tall with long gray hair, but officials say a witness who said she also saw the man flee has since recanted and is no longer credible.
