Texas police acting on a tip-off have found a mass grave containing "a lot of bodies," including the corpses of children, according to reports in the US media.

The Liberty County sheriff's office was combing the area after being told 25 to 30 dismembered bodies, many of them possibly children, were buried outside a house at the intersection of two roads, the Houston Chronicle said.

"A lot of bodies" had been found on a property in Hardin, Texas about 31km northeast of Houston, a law enforcement source told CBS television.

Some of the bodies were children, the source told CBS.

Contrary to these claims, Houston Chronicle reported Liberty County sheriff's spokesman Rex Evans said about 6pm local time (9am AEST) officers had not exhumed any bodies.

"At this time we have not recovered any bodies," he was quoted as saying.

"We only received information of a possible crime scene here at this location. "Upon our arrival we determined that there was need for a search warrant. Once that warrant arrives at the scene we will further our investigation."

Residents at the home were so far being "uncooperative", he added.


The FBI had been called in to investigate, along with a sniffer dog, after the department received a tip-off this morning (AEST), Mr Evans told the Chronicle .

According to a teenage neighbour, a girl used to live in the house with her fiancé and her parents who were long-haul truck drivers.

The 16-year-old told local media her neighbours had moved out about a week ago.

The Chronicle reported the truck driver who lived at the address was apparently called Joe Bankson. Mr Bankson was reached in Dallas where he was travelling with his wife, and reportedly said he did not know why police wanted to search his home. "I haven't killed anybody," he was quoted as saying. "And I have a lot of friends, but I haven't helped bury any bodies."

wait...if they havent dug anything up and have only received a tip that there may possibly be a mass grave there, why is this being billed as 'a mass grave has been found'? seems like hasty reporting.

That never happened, Hollywood thought the urban legend would make a great movie so they made a overblown movie about it and now everyone assumes that Texans are psychotic man eating hillbillies with chainsaws.


And TS is from Australia, why is he bringing this up and not a Texan? I just saw this on the news too.

LIBERTY COUNTY — Liberty County sheriff's deputies are on the scene of a home in Hardin where a tipster told them 25 to 30 bodies are buried.
A law enforcement source confirmed that a mass grave with "a lot of bodies" was found on the property near the intersection of County Roads 2048 and 2049.
Some of them are children, according to the source.
The tipster said dozens of dismembered bodies are buried in the grave, according to Cleveland Advocate reporter Vanesa Brashier.
The information is coming from a psychic, according to another source in Liberty County.
Sheriff's deputies said they found blood at the scene and were waiting for a warrant to search further.
Property owner Joe Bankston said he's shocked by the reports of bodies on his property.
"This is like something out of a novel," Bankston said by phone from Dallas.
Bankston said his daughter lives in the house.
He said there's blood on the porch and in the house because his daughter's former boyfriend tried to commit suicide a couple of weeks ago.
"He got drunk and cut his wrist," Bankston said. "It took me all day to clean the inside of the house. I'm not sure I got it [the blood] all."
The boyfriend, an Army soldier who was AWOL, is now in a military psychiatric ward in Killeen, according to Bankston. He said a police report was filed with the sheriff's department after the suicide attempt.
Bankston said he's owned the property for a little over three years. He admitted his son, Joe, is a convicted sex offender, but said he hasn't lived in Hardin for over a year.
"He lived with us for a little while, but had to go to Michigan about a year ago for a court appearance and never came back," Bankston said. "Last I heard, he was in Ohio."
About 15 sheriff's department vehicles and at least one cadaver dog were on the scene Tuesday evening.
The Beaumont FBI has also been asked to assist in the investigation.
Texas Equusearch founder Tim Miller said they have been contacted and are on standby to provide equipment and other resources as needed.
"If the story is as it's being told, hopefully this will bring some closure to many, many families who have wondered where their children, or their daughters or their loved ones have been," Miller said.

You know Australia is almost the opposite end of the Earth from Texas. Great place for a criminal to run away to...

I'm on to you TS.

But for real this is horrible. What makes it worse is the lack of detail on what caused this...

Because it is a fairly significant news story.

Because upon hearing the news i'm less likely to pause briefly then go on a one-sided rant about one of the following; gun control, welfare, "big guvmint", teaching christianity in schools, putting god in the courts, seceding from the union, how evolution is "just a theory" and all a big conspiracy, how global warming is all a big conspiracy, how the government is one gigantic conspiracy, how taxes are evil, etc, etc.

This is a terrible thing that sadly makes the chainsaw killer stereotype seem even more true. Faux news might be offensive to texans soon,

Well I guess know there's nowhere that I'll be considered normal. Maybe it's time to give up my dreams and hang the ole chainsaw up for good.

As of 7:27 local time, there are no bodies. For those that don't feel like looking up the time difference, that's an hour after OP's news story was published.

Well, I see where the owner of the supposed grave is coming from, I sure as hell wouldn't want cops searching my house just because of some psychic 's bad LSD trip. Also I heard about this on the radio, apparently the cops got tipped off by a psychic.
