SBI agents plan to search scene of triple murder


MARSHVILLE, NC (AP) -- Agents from the State Bureau of Investigation are planning a new search inside a Union County house where the bodies of three people were found.

WSOC-TV reported agents were returning Sunday to the house near Marshville. Agents say they'll use special forensic technology to try to locate new pieces of evidence.

The house belonged to one of the victims, Ronnie Overcash. Neighbors say he lived there with his girlfriend, Crystal Hicks, whose body was found in a wooded area behind the home.

The body of 61-year-old Jerry Marsh also was found inside the house. Friends and neighbors said Marsh lived next door to Overcash, and he employed Overcash on a nearby chicken farm
