(Texas EquuSearch lead Search Coordinator David White holds a briefing before joining search efforts with cadaver dogs from Texas Search and Rescue in a joint effort to recover additional human remains.)

Search efforts resumed today at about 8:30 am by Investigators with the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office and assisted by Texas Rangers in a wooded area on CR 133 N in the South portion of the county where human remains had been found last week. Utilizing searchers from Texas EquuSearch, Sheriff’s Mounted Posse and five cadaver dogs from the Texas Search and Rescue organization the day-long search turned up several additional human remains as well as assorted other pieces of valuable evidence. These items were uncovered when the recent flood waters of the Trinity River receded and the smaller tributaries became dry.

All the human remains will be turned over to the lab in Jefferson County for DNA examination as no confirmed identification can be determined at this early stage. The investigation is on-going and Sheriff’s Investigators are asking the public to forward any information they may have regarding this case to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office at (936) 336-4500 or call the Multi-County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-392 STOP (7867). All callers to Crime Stoppers will remain anonymous and a “tip” may lead to a cash reward. (END)
