Dozens of bodies have been found on a property in Liberty County, officials said Tuesday.

The Liberty County Sheriff’s Office said 25 to 30 bodies were discovered outside a home at the intersection of County Roads 2049 and 2048 between Hardin and Daisetta.

Investigators said someone told them about the location, but they did not elaborate.

The FBI was called in to assist the investigation.

Officials said a search warrant was obtained to gather evidence.

Acting on a macabre tip in regard to a possible mass grave or dismembered bodies, perhaps belonging to children, the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday, June 7, closed down CR 2048 at CR 2049 in Hardin.

The department received the tip on Tuesday afternoon, which immediately led deputies to a home on CR 2048, said department Public Information Officer Capt. Rex Evans.

A 16-year-old girl, who was a neighbor to the house on CR 2048, said an occupant of the house is her friend and that she apparently moved out of the home a week ago. The girl’s friend had lived at the home with her fiance and part of the time with her parents who were long-haul truck drivers.

Authorities are seeking a search warrant in order to search the home, where some of the individuals involved have been “uncooperative” so far, Evans said.

Meanwhile, a cadaver dog has been deployed to search the property.

More information will be provided upon its availability.
