PLYMOUTH, N.C. (WNCT/WNCN) – Deputies searching a property in rural North Carolina for human remains Friday have found numerous dead animals and expect to continue searching the site through the weekend, Washington County Sheriff Johnny Barnes said.

Deputies obtained a search warrant Thursday for the property on Alligood Road in Creswell as a result of a lead in the Craig Swain case.
