Don Pedro Searched For Bodies

Sponsored by:

F-B-I agents and sheriff´s divers have searched the Don Pedro reservoir for submerged bodies as part of an investigation into organized crime.

F-B-I agent Nick Rossi says no bodies were found yesterday.

Agents used sonar last week at the site to find the most likely spots where a body or bodies might be submerged. Rossi says it´s believed at least one body is in the water.

Authorities are also trying to determine if a body found last fall in New Melones Lake is related to the case.

The body of a man, between 40 and 60 years old, was found floating with his hands bound and a plastic bag over his head.
