(Newser) – Two dogs trained to sniff out human remains, working separately, alerted police today to the possibility on the property belonging to northern California kidnap-rape suspects Phillip and Nancy Garrido, CNN reports. Authorities are also looking for evidence to connect the couple to the 1980s disappearances of girls from nearby towns, and say they’ll use radar equipment and likely dig at the spot tomorrow.
