Shaquita Bell Search Yields No Results

Search continues for body of murdered woman missing since 1996

Police spent two days searching for the body of Shaquita Bell this week, but they did not find it. 

For years police have believed she was buried in a wooded area of Fort Washington.  Previous searches there have failed to find any sign of the grave of the 23-year-old woman. 

Bell was murdered in 1996 by her ex-boyfriend Michael Dickerson.  Dickerson was afraid she would tell the police about a murder he had committed, according to court documents.

Dickerson agreed to plead guilty last week and to show investigators where he buried Bell's body.  He pointed out a spot in the woods but so far, Bell's remains have not been found.
