ShcriH s Cap By LINDA WESTEKLAGE SEWS STACK WR1TKR The search for bodies in one of Uie most bizarre murder cases in modern times has moved lo Galveston. Police Chief D. K. Lack says a roadgrader Monday will scrape a 200 yard area in tlic sand dunes on the eastern tip of Galveston Island where officers have been told two bodies may be buried. Officers working in the area Saturday did find a soft spol in the sand dunes and uncovered a fetus believed to have been buried less than 24 hours. This find was not believed to be connected in any way with the record murder case which thus far lias yielded 27 known victims Seventeen were found in a boatshed in Houston, four near Sam Hayburn Lake and six near High Island. The seaich is being conducted in Galveston because two persons have contacted police reporting unrelated incidents they observed on the beach which they feel arc suspicious. A Houston woman, who does not want to be identified said she was on the bench in June when .she saw three men standing near a white van. She said they were burying something in pluslic bag she thought was fturbage at Uie lime. Since the murders have been made public, she has identified iwu of Ihe men as being Dean Uorll and Klmer Wayne Henley Jr, bolli accused in the mass slaying case. The woman and her family mic on Uie beach Saturday trying to help law enforcement officers find the location where she says she saw the men. She says she is positive of her identification of Henley find Corll from photographs. C. C. Abernalhy of Houston has told police his family was camping nn the beach in February when he saw two young mei carrying something into the dunes.
