Multiple sources have told News 9's Lisa Monahan that the OSBI and other Oklahoma law enforcement agencies are excavating a home near Northwest 10th St. and MacArthur Blvd. Monday to search for possible human remains and other evidence in Saunder's murder. The OSBI confirms the medical examiner and an OU archaeologist are at the scene.

The dig is expected to take several days, according to officials. Authorities with the OSBI said recent tips have led them to search this location.

Authorities say that the home where the excavation is taking place was the home of a person of interest in Saunder's murder.
