No bodies found in NM sex torture case search

No bodies have been found during a search of a New Mexico reservoir for possible victims of a man convicted a decade ago of sexually torturing women.

FBI spokesman Frank Fisher said federal and local law enforcement agents surveyed a canyon but only found animal bones. He said authorities expect to return to some "places of interests" in the near future, but didn't have an exact date.

Authorities fanned out on the southern end of Elephant Butte Reservoir after they received information about possible remains of missing victims of David Parker Ray.

Authorities have long believed that Ray, who died in 2002 while serving life in prison for sexual torture, buried some of the 40 victims he claimed to have had.

No bodies have ever been found.
