WOBURN (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Prosecutors in the murder trial of 20-year-old Nathaniel Fujita displayed some of the items seized during the investigation in court on Tuesday.
Lauren Astley's family could not bear to look at the leopard print summer dress worn by the teen on the day she was killed.
Prosecutors also showed a pair of bloody sneakers recovered from Fujita's home, as well as a bungee cord that was entangled in Astley's hair.
A computer forensic expert described a Google search found on Fujita's computer done after the murder.
"In this case, what was entered in that search boss?" the prosecutor asked.
"Does water erase fingerprints?" the expert responded.
The expert also testified that Fujita belonged to a Facebook group called, "Have You Seen Lauren Astley?"
Fujita and Astley were high school sweethearts at Wayland High. In the weeks prior to the murder, Astley broke up with Fujita. Prosecutors allege Fujita lured the teen to his home on July 3, 2011 where he beat her, strangled her with a bungee cord, and sliced her throat before dumping her body in a Wayland swamp.
Fujita's lawyer appears to be mounting an insanity defense, claiming his client was so depressed over the break-up that he could not control himself.
Testimony resumes on Wednesday. FOX 25 has learned the jury may get the case on Tuesday.
