Police Investigating Tip on Dozens of Dead Bodies in Texas


UPDATE: Law enforcement officials Tuesday night left the property after finding no bodies at the scene. 

A spokesman for the Liberty County Sheriff's Department said after Tuesday's search, "No bodies found, nothing to indicate a homicide occurred here."

(HOUSTON) -- Police are investigating a tip that a Texas property may be housing dozens of buried bodies, law enforcement officials said Tuesday.

The FBI has been called in to assist the investigation as the Liberty County Sheriff's Department pursues a warrant to search the property. Federal investigators have not been able to confirm that any bodies have been found and local police declined to comment for this report.

Local news outlets initially reported the sheriff's office said they had discovered 25 to 30 bodies outside the home.

The FBI said they will make an evidence response team of forensic experts available if needed.
