LA CUEVA, N.M. (KRQE) - Officers on foot and on all-terrain vehicles are combing for clues through the Jemez Mountains near the cabin where a Sandoval County deputy and his assailant were killed nearly two weeks ago.
State police officers are looking for evidence that might connect Joseph Burgess to murders in Canada, California and possibly New Mexico.
On July 16, using a gun belonging to Eley, Burgess shot and killed Sgt. Joe Harris, who fired back and killed Burgess. Harris later died of his injuries.
State police are using the clothes Burgess was wearing for scent dogs to try to track where Burgess was living. They're also searching by foot and by ATV to try to find any other clues. They're not currently planning to search by air.
Police plan to search for three days.
