Deputies who swarmed a rural Texas neighborhood today to search a farmhouse where a person claiming to be a psychic told officials multiple bodies were buried found no evidence of even a single homicide. Liberty County Sheriff's Capt. Rex Evans said there was no indication of bodies being anywhere on the property about 70 miles northeast of Houston. Officials ended their search tonight and went home, with the focus of the investigation now turning to the tipster who led local law enforcement and FBI agents to the home.
The sheriff's office had received two calls from the person, officials said. Evans said authorities took the tip seriously in part because the caller had details about the interior of the house that only someone who had seen it could have known. He said authorities were working to track down the tipster and determine how she had such detailed information on the house. A county judge said deputies found blood on a back door and detected a foul odor coming from the house, leading to the search warrant. (Read more Texas stories.)
