GALLERY: Search teams, investigators search new location in missing Welch girls case
OSBI and Craig County District Attorney Matt Ballard announced investigators will be gathering this morning in Picker, Okla. to possibly excavate an old root cellar. Ronnie Busick, who pled guilty to his part in the case, gave investigators the location information for this possible excavation. Lauria Bible and Ashley Freeman haven't been seen since 1999 and are presumed dead. In June 2020 Ronnie Busick admitted withholding information in the case and pled guilty to one count of accessory to murder in the first degree. As part of that deal if he leads investigators to the girls' remains then his time in prison will be shortened.
