Police dig through trash for Currier clues

COVENTRY, Vt. -

Investigators are digging through tons of trash in search of evidence in the Bill and Lorraine Currier case.

Monday morning a caravan of law enforcement vehicles pulled into the Coventry landfill around 10 a.m. Federal authorities say the new search is part of a coordinated investigation into the disappearance of Bill and Lorraine Currier.
    
About two dozen FBI agents from the evidence response team arrived on scene with ATVs and equipment trailers. Joining them were the Vermont State Police with a mobile crime scene command post.
    
The dig comes three weeks after police excavated a property at 32 Upper Main Street on Route 15 in Essex. The dig there lasted two days. Some evidence was collected, but police never publicly identified what it was. The home that once stood on the land was torn down in October. When a home is demolished, construction debris is sent to one of two landfills in the state. Now the feds are focusing their attention in Coventry.

Crews spent the day setting up camp deep within the landfill. They erected tents and set-up generators. Special fencing was rolled out along the perimeter of the search area.  Federal authorities say the dig is expected to take one to three weeks. It's still unclear what investigators are looking for -- bodies or some other sort of evidence. What is clear is that this will be a challenging excavation.

A lawyer for Casella Waste Management says authorities have asked him and the staff not to answer any questions about the ongoing investigation.
