Now a judge has ordered the state crime lab to take a look at a KNIFE taken from the two men.

Since he was 15, senior pro golfer Jim Colbert has suffered from back pain. In the last few years, he's taken to strapping on magnets to help him with his game. JIM COLBERT, GOLFER, 32 MONTHS, I HAVEN'T MISSED A DAY. IT'S NOT AN OPTION FOR ME. IT CREATES A LOT OF CIRCULATION.
It's not just Colbert, but about half the members of the Senior PGA tour use magnet therapy to relieve aches and pains.
The magnets, found in pro shops across the country, sell for thirty to about a hundred dollars, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes to help various body parts.
Dr. Paul Rosch, who is writing a book about the use magnets to control pains, says one thing is certain... DR. PAUL ROSCH, INSTITUTE OF STRESS, THERE IS LITTLE QUESTION ABOUT THE FACT THAT MAGNETS PRODUCE REMARKABLE RESULTS IN CONTROLLING PAIN AND INFLAMMATION.
Golfers aren't the only ones to discover this alternative to mainstream medicine. Six months after knee surgery, a friend suggested Nancy Del Pizzio give it a try. NANCY DEL PIZZIO, I PUT THEM ON AND THOUGHT LET ME TRY MY HOPPING AND I COULD HOP. I KNEW IT WAS BECAUSE OF THE MAGNETS. THEY DON'T ELIMINATE THE PAIN BUT THEY REDUCE IT.
The Food and Drug Administration has neither approved nor disapproved magnets as a treatment because it's never been asked to. And there is skepticism in the mainstream medical community about their effectiveness. DR. SCOTT RODEO, ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON, CORNELL MEDICAL CENTER, EVERY CELL HAS THE ELECTRICAL POTENTIAL BUT TO SAY A MAGNETIC FIELD WILL AFFECT THE ELECTRICAL POTENTIAL IN A NEGATIVE OF POSITIVE WAY JUST HASN'T BEEN DEMONSTRATED.
But Dr. Rosch believes it's the results that count. ROSCH: YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE AND EVERYTHING TO GAIN. PEOPLE SAY IT IS A PLACEBO EFFECT. IT'S ALL IN YOUR MIND. IF IT WORKS, NOBODY REALLY CARES.
Even Dr. Rosch says magnets are no substitute for seeing your doctor. but if it's a choice between using a magnet and pain-killing drugs, he says you might want to give it a try.
