Police said to be searching new areas in Gibson case

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Witnesses tell WDRB News they've seen police searching in new parts of southern Indiana in the case of an accused serial killer.

The remains of Stephanie Kirk were found in the backyard of William Clyde Gibson's New Albany home, but he hasn't been charged with her death.  He is charged with murdering Christine Whitis and Karen Hodella.

Construction crews saw Indiana State Police and New Albany Police exploring a site on Utica Pike, just before the Quarry Bluff neighborhood.

WDRB spoke to New Albany's police chief off-camera, but Sherri Knight wouldn't comment on whether Gibson, who's now being held in the Floyd County Jail, was at the search site Monday night.

There are more than 1,000 missing persons in Indiana, and Chief Knight says they will rule out or explore any case further, if needed.

She says officials hope to brief the media towards the end of the week.
