NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) – Investigators have moved a search for evidence and answers outside of a murder suspect's home to nearby woods. Around 11 a.m. WAVE 3 was the only crew there as four men drove out of the woods in a pick-up. The area they were in is next to a Shell Gas Station just off Grant Line Road, south of I-265. 

WAVE 3 left a message for Major Keith Whitlow to get more information, but he did not return the call.

Investigators have been searching William "Clyde" Gibson's home and nearby areas for weeks.  On April 27 they discovered the body of 35-year-old Stephanie Kirk buried in his backyard.

Gibson is accused of killing long-time family friend, 75-year-old Christine Whitis and 45-year-old Karen Hodella who went missing 10 years ago; it was months before anyone discovered her body.

Gibson hasn't been charged in Kirk's death, but could be once the toxicology results arrive.
