Police: Ex-girlfriend not a suspect

INDIANAPOLIS -- Police searched The Indianapolis Star
offices Friday morning and seized a computer used by a slain
Cincinnati Reds outfielder's former girlfriend.

Sheriff's detectives confiscated the computer formerly used by
24-year-old Jennifer Gaddis, the former girlfriend of baseball
player Dernell Stenson.

Gaddis no longer works at the newspaper.

Police in Chandler, Arizona, say she is not a suspect. They're
calling her an investigative lead in Stenson's death. Chandler
police detectives searched her home in Indianapolis a week ago.

The 25-year-old Stenson was found dead on Nov. 5 after a
night out with friends. He'd been playing in the Arizona Fall
League. Four men have been arrested in connection with his death.

According to police reports, Gaddis sent threatening text
messages to Stenson's cell phone two weeks before he was kidnapped
and killed.

"U better pray I never see you U again, I swear Dernell U R
worth a murder charge 4 & that is all U R worth," one message
said.
