New lead amps up Kyron investigationAugust 9, 2010 @ 6:20 am (Updated: 1:53 pm - 3/28/11 )
A potential new lead in the ongoing investigation into what happened to Kyron Horman, who disappeared from his school in Portland, Oregon eight weeks ago.
KPAM reporter Tim Hohl told KIRO Radio Monday that new searches are underway on private property near Kyron's school where he was last seen.
Investigators will only say they are looking for "forensic evidence," but other sources say the search is for one or more disposable cell phones which Kyron's stepmother and her friend bought under false names.
That information reportedly came out of closed grand jury testimony late last week.
Stepmother Terri Horman's actions remain a focus of the investigation but she has not been charged or even named a "person of interest" in this case.
