" 11.05 Stuff LATEST:
Texas authorities have found up to 30 bodies, possibly all children, buried at a house in a rural county east of Houston, local media reported.
The Liberty County Sheriff's Office said 25 to 30 bodies were found, according to KPRC television.
Preliminary reports indicated the bodies are those of children, the TV station reported.
The sheriff did not immediately return telephone calls or e-mails by Reuters.
Investigators said someone told them about the location, but they did not elaborate, the station said.
Local paper Cleveland Advocate said the tipster told authorities dozens of dismembered bodies were buried at the scene."
I reacted by checking the New Zealand Herald website at this point 11.07 it was being covered like this,
11.07 NZ Herald
Federal agents and sheriff's deputies plan to search a rural house in Southeast Texas after receiving a tip that multiple dismembered bodies are buried there.
Spokesman Rex Evans of the Sheriff's Department said the office had received an anonymous report that there were bodies in the home.
Deputies went to the house and determined that a search warrant was required.
The Houston Chronicle is reporting the tip-off came from a psychic.
Shortly before 6pm local time (11am NZST), Liberty County sheriff's spokesman Rex Evans told the Chronicle that officers had not exhumed any bodies.
"At this time we have not recovered any bodies," he said.
"We only received information of a possible crime scene here at this location. Upon our arrival we determined that there was a need for a search warrant. Once that warrant arrives at the scene we will further our investigation."
At this point I was starting to think WTF a psychic came up with this tip and followed the link above to Houston Chronicle.
