Earlier in the preliminary hearing, a former FBI agent revealed they found a tranquilizer dart cap in the dryer in the family’s home. On Monday, the investigator clarified that it was a needle sheath for a tranquilizer dart gun. He said that Barry Morphew shoots deer with the tranquilizer darts and then cuts off their antlers, which doesn’t kill the deer.
