High-tech equipment from federal authorities will be brought in to assist police in the investigation into a missing Chicago businesswoman, officials said Monday.
Finding out what happened to Franklin will depend largely on physical evidence, sources said. Detectives were still waiting for forensic tests to be finished on Franklin's car. They also were tracing Franklin's last steps and checking security tapes from her condominium building in the 1500 block of South Sangamon.
Two laptops were missing from the condo: her work and her personal computer, her family said.
Detectives also were pursuing information about a complaint Franklin made to Chicago Police about a man who had made threatening phone calls to her. The man, whom she met this year and dated for a few months, also has been named in an order of protection by another woman and has a criminal background, sources said.
