Dogs Employed In Search For 1980s Crime Victims

Colonial National Historical Park

National Park News

Several areas along the Colonial Parkway were searched on June 5th by cadaver dogs seeking evidence pertaining to homicides and missing persons cases that occurred in the park in the 1980s. The dogs alerted in the area of Bellfield Plantation, and park rangers maintained security at the scene until an FBI evidence recovery team arrived the following morning. In an operation coordinated with the park’s cultural resources specialist, a small area was excavated down to sterile subsoil, but no evidence of previous ground disturbance or a crime was found. The FBI arranged for an additional search of the site by cadaver dog, which did not produce any further alerts. Local media interest in a series of unsolved crimes from the 1980s throughout Tidewater Virginia remains high.
