FBI personnel and technical experts completed the fourth day of site preparation at an old well in Linden today.
The collaborative team continued advance work to support an excavation effort that may locate remains of one or more homicide victims believed to be interred in the well for more than two decades.
Despite estimates that the bottom of the well was located 50 feet underground, the team did not reach the bottom or any debris even at 100 feet below the surface on Wednesday.
Today, the bottom was located more than 200 feet below the surface of the interior operational area.
Unfortunately, the bottom of the well must be drained of water before workers can bring in a camera to get a better picture of the area.
A specialized pump will be brought in, but it could take days to clear out the water.
