LMPD Dive team in Rineyville; Residents say for Brent Burke case
RINEYVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --
Officers have been scouring the small town of Rineyville for two straight days, and many are convinced it's linked to the Brent Burke case.
Army officials on scene only say they're using the divers to help search areas of interest to them and that if anything if found, it could help them with current investigations. They would not specify what that could be.
The Louisville Metro Police Department's dive team was asked to search specific areas of water.
On Tuesday, divers searched a pond behind the home where Tracy Burke and Karen Comer were killed in September of 2007.
Tracy's estranged husband and former Fort Campbell soldier Brent Burke is accused of killing them. After two mistrials and two hung juries in the civilian judicial system, the military is now going to try Burke for the crime.
The gun used in the killings was never found.
LMPD will only say they'll use the search as a training exercise.
Brent Burke is due back in a military court in Fort Campbell on Friday.
The preliminary hearing will determine whether prosecutors should pursue the charges to a general court martial.
