HARDIN, TX (AP) -

Authorities who investigated a tip that multiple bodies were buried at a rural Texas farmhouse are turning their attention to the tipster after they turned up nothing.

Authorities searched the property about 70 miles northeast of Houston on Tuesday. Liberty County Sheriff's Capt. Rex Evans said there was no indication of bodies being anywhere on the property.

Authorities say the tip came from a woman claiming to be a psychic.

Evans said authorities took it seriously in part because the caller had details about the interior of the house that only someone who had seen it could have known.

He said authorities were working to track down the tipster and determine how she had such detailed information on the house.
