FBI: Area Where Boy Held Hostage Checked For Bombs

MIDLAND CITY, Ala. (February 5, 2013)--Bomb technicians will continue to sweep the property of a kidnapper left dead after officers raided a bunker to free a 5-year-old hostage in Alabama, the FBI said.

Meanwhile, Dale County Coroner Woodrow Hilboldt said Tuesday that officials have not yet removed the body of Jimmy Lee Dykes, 65, from the underground shelter.

Hilboldt said he does not yet know how Dykes died because he has not yet examined the body.

Hilboldt said the body will be taken to Montgomery for an autopsy, though he did not know exactly when that may happen.

FBI special agent Jason Pack says teams will collect evidence at the scene in rural Midland City after officers make sure there are no explosives on the 100-acre property.

Agents stormed the bunker Monday afternoon to rescue the boy who the FBI says was in imminent danger.
