Taylor Behl Task Force seeks public aid in finding pond (pictures)

The Taylor Behl Task Force Monday released photos of a pond, obtained in the Pond1 TBinvestigation, and is seeking public assistance in determining its location. They are requesting your help in determining the location of this picture.

Photos and the request for public assistance were initially sent primarily to news media in the Virginia tidewater area on the presumption that the pond is likely located in that part of Virginia, according to authorities. Other news media, however, have picked up on the information in the highly-publicized case.

The Task Force did not identify the source of the pond photos. Attorney General’s Office investigator, Les Lauziere, when queried Monday by the Vienna Times, would not say whether the photos were taken from a computer belonging to Ben Fawley, “a person of interest” in the case, currently being held by Richmond police on unrelated child pornography charges.

UPDATE: AP: Pond identified as Behl murder investigation continues Pond2 TB

Police looking into the death of college student Taylor Behl say they have identified and located a pond shown in two photographs that are part of their investigation.

Sergeant D.S. Carr with the Virginia State Police said in an e-mail to reporters Monday that the pond has been identified located in an area adjacent to Mathews County , but he cannot say anything else about it because of a judge’s gag order in the case.

Other agencies on the task force include the state attorney general’s office, the FBI, and the Richmond and VCU police departments.

Anyone with information should call police at (877) 244-HELP or (804) 828-1196.

Richmond Times Dispatch: Behl investigators want help

Authorities hoping public can lead them to photographed pond

Two photos of a pond believed to be in Mathews County could prove to be little more than a fishing expedition in the hunt for evidence in the death of Virginia Commonwealth University student Taylor Behl. Sources close to the investigation said Behl task force members gathering evidence on the Vienna teen’s death in September — allegedly during a sexual encounter in Mathews with suspect Benjamin Fawley — have no direct evidence suggesting that the pond is linked to Behl’s death.

Still, the sources said investigators want to know where the pond is because it is one of the few places photographed by Fawley that they have not been able to identify and search in the three months since Behl was last seen alive.

Search for missing Teketria Buggs not encouraging

An Amber Alert has been issued for Teketria Buggs. She was last seen on Saturday sleeping on a couch inside her home.

Authorities say they’ve found no signs of struggle, no signs of foul play and no indication that a crime occurred. But maybe the most disturbing thing is that they’ve found no sign of this missing girl.
Search crews lowered an infrared underwater camera into the Brazos River in the hope of finding anything that might lead to Teketria.

“For her just to get up and put on her shoes, that’s impossible for me to believe,” said Laronald Foy, Teketria’s mother. “God himself would have to come and tell me that.”

Authorities are searching the 12 acres surrounding the home, as are volunteers from Equusearch. Director Tim Miller is not optimistic about finding the 12-year-old alive.

“There are a lot of things we don’t like about this one,” Miller admitted. “It just doesn’t feel good.”

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Teketria Buggs, please call Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS.
