HPD: Landfill search could take 'days'

October 20, 2010

Hickory Police and Caldwell County Sheriff's departments held a press conference Wednesday shortly after authorities announced an ongoing landfill search for clues in the Zahra Baker disappearance case.
HPD Police Chief Tom Adkins said searching the landfill could take up to five days, and while the police chief would only say investigators are searching for "a piece of evidence," he did confirm that they are not looking for Zahra's body. The landfill will be secured while the search is not active, Adkins said.
A team from Hickory Police Department, along with the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation agents, Evidence Recovery Team members and agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Marshal Service, are searching for a piece of evidence in the Foothills Environmental Landfill in Caldwell County.
The search team is being supported by the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office and the Hickory Fire Department.
The O-N-E will update the website as information is available in the homicide investigation of 10-year-old Zahra Baker. For complete details be sure to see the Thursday edition of The O-N-E.
