Calaveras County sheriff's officials said investigators knocked on the doors of hundreds of homes Saturday to find possible witnesses in their search for the killer of 8-year-old girl Leila Fowler.

Sgt. Chris Hewitt said in the morning that because it was a Saturday, investigators expected to find more people at their homes in the Valley Springs and Rancho Calaveras area to answer questions.

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.
