Puyallup, Wash. • A group of 30 volunteers continued to sift through piles of papers at a Washington state landfill on Sunday with hopes of uncovering clues possibly left behind by Josh Powell, who killed his two sons and himself in a fire at his home a week ago.
Investigators from the Pierce County Sheriff's Office visited the recycling center Wednesday and conducted a brief search for the papers. The effort failed to yield anything relevant, said office spokesman Ed Troyer.
The search effort resumed on Sunday, with no reports of evidence recovered as of late Sunday afternoon. The volunteers were part of a youth explorers program run through the sheriff's department. Law enforcement was on hand to oversee their efforts.
