New search for evidence in 2009 Va. resort shootings

Officials are heading back into the woods near Virginia's The Homestead resort to search for a man charged with killing two of his supervisors there last year.

Bath County Sheriff Larry Norfleet says crews will search the area around the resort with dogs that detect human remains just in case 60-year-old Beacher Hackney died when he fled after the shootings.

Norfleet does not know when the search will begin.

Hackney is wanted on capital murder and firearms charges in connection with the March 21, 2009, shootings in the resort's kitchen area.

Police believe Hackney shot his two supervisors because he was unhappy about being transferred to the busy dinner shift and had argued with one of the victims who accused him of using too many garbage bags.
