Overfelt sent texts to his wife stating that if she did not tell him where she was, then he would burn her things. According to the affidavit, Officer Robinson was able to identify “burned paper with nursing material printed on it”. Overfelt’s wife provided a list of her medical books and placed the value at less than $1,000.
