Police: Nephew sold missing woman’s jewelry

Investigators confirmed Monday that they found 74-year-old Dorothy Heard’s wedding ring at a Marion pawn shop where it was sold June 13, the day the Noblesville woman went missing. Police identified her nephew, Donald Burns, from a store videotape taken when he pawned the jewelry; he also showed identification during the transaction. Burns, 47, was arrested June 14 when he tried to evade officers who wanted to question him. But authorities have not identified him as a suspect.
