The best and worst of Triad police blotters, as compiled


State and Forsyth County authorities serving a search warrant at a Clemmons home discovered skeletal remains of two adults buried in the back yard. Investigators descended on the home at 2749 Knob Hill Drive on Sunday armed with search warrants. The search continued into Monday and Tuesday as authorities continued to collect evidence. Charged were Pazuzu Illah Algarad, 35, and Amber Nicole Burch, 24. Pazuzu was formerly known as Josh Lawson when he attended West Forsyth High School. Authorities charged the couple with murder. According to the Camel City Dispatch, and online discussion forums, Pazuzu participated in obscure religious practices, identifying at one time with Satanism.

Search warrants detailed the killings, which took place in 2009. A third person was arrested as an accessory after the fact on Tuesday.


Greensboro police cleared a string of commercial breaking and entering charges after DNA evidence matched that of a man already in custody. Carl Crawford, 27, of Longfellow Street, was charged with breaking into six Subway restaurants throughout Greensboro after evidence collected from the scene was processed by Cellmark Forensics Lab. Crawford was previously arrested for breaking into more than 10 Radio Shack stores across North Carolina in late summer. Cellmark notified Greensboro police of the match on Sept. 29, the date the additional charges were added. The DNA testing was done as part of a program regional law enforcement agencies are using. Regional police and sheriff’s agencies combined to form the NC DNA Consortium in 2012.
