Residents of Calaveras County, California are expressing shock as the twelve-year old brother of Leila Fowler has been arrested in connection with her death.

The body of the eight- year old girl was discovered by her brother on April 27, 2013.  He said a muscular man with long gray hair was seen running away from the house.  A neighbor had corroborated that story, then later recanted it.

The name of the brother is not being released because of his age.
