HARDIN, Texas – A county judge says an anonymous tip saying multiple bodies are buried at a southeast Texas farmhouse came from a person claiming to be a psychic.
Liberty County Judge Craig McNair said the sheriff’s office received a Monday night call from a person who said many bodies were at the house about 70 miles northeast of Houston. McNair says the caller claimed some of the bodies were dismembered and some children.
McNair says deputies who visited the property Monday found nothing amiss during a quick search. The tipster called back Tuesday morning and said deputies looked in the wrong place.
McNair says deputies who returned later Tuesday found blood on a back door and detected a foul odor coming from the house.
Investigators are waiting for a search warrant and haven’t yet gone inside.
