Douglas County Crime Lab and Douglas County Sheriff investigators were at the home of Robert Edwards, near 111th and Blondo streets on Wednesday afternoon. Investigators were using a heavy duty saw to cut through concrete under the deck in the back yard of the home. Her body has never been found.
Christopher Edwards was convicted in March 2007 of second degree murder after prosecutors presented detailed blood evidence found in Edwards’ bedroom.
DNA experts testified the blood belonged to O’Grady.
Dunning said on Wednesday that his office received several credible tips, including one that indicated concrete had been installed at the Edwards home at the time of O’Grady’s homicide investigation.
Dunning also said an archeologist’s radar unit showed a sizeable mass inside that concrete.
“Evidence and/or her remains, we feel, are going to be found there,” said Dunning.
Robert Edwards left his home Wednesday afternoon and has not returned, according to Dunning.
The following is a rough timeline of the events surround the homicide case:
