LEAGUE CITY, Texas — A Department of Public Safety dive team has been searching a 20-acre lake for evidence in the so-called Calder Road killings, authorities said.
From 1984 to 1991, authorities discovered the bodies of four women in a field near Calder Road.
The divers Tuesday and Wednesday found only a car and an empty industrial drum, League City police said. They returned to the scene on Thursday.
"DPS was interested in looking into it again, and they wanted to do a sonar run out of a boat to look for anything in the water that might not have been discovered before," League City police Lt. Bruce Whitten said.
The car had been reported stolen about a year ago, Whitten said.
Crystal Lake is about 20 acres of freshwater near Calder Road that is the site of the development of upscale homes.
The lake was searched during previous investigations, Whitten said.
"It was within a mile of where the bodies were found, but they were never found in water and they never found anything around the lake itself."
The Department of Public Safety is involved because of the number of people reported missing south of League City through the years, and because not all the people found in League City were League City residents, Whitten said.
