CLEMMONS — Forsyth County Sheriff’s deputies, CSI units and the State Bureau of Investigation were back Friday morning at the Knob Hill Drive residence where human remains were found almost two weeks ago.

Security tape was back up around the home at 2749 Knob Hill Drive, and 14 vehicles were parked at the home.

On Thursday, Clemmons utility crews removed debris from the property and hauled it away in dump trucks.

Chief Deputy Brad Stanley of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said investigators have not found additional bodies, though detectives are continuing their investigation at the property.

“There’s some work still to be done,” he said.

Forsyth County District Attorney Jim O’Neill was at the scene Friday afternoon. He declined to discuss any details.

“While I can’t answer specific questions as it relates to the case, I can only tell you that the FCSO (Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office) in conjunction with the SBI and scientists from N.C. State continue to work in collaboration in their investigation at the location at Knob Hill Drive,” O’Neill said in a statement.

On Oct. 5, Forsyth County Sheriff’s deputies found the skeletal remains of two men, later identified as Joshua Frederick Wetzler and Tommy Dean Welch. Both men were reported missing in 2009. Pazuzu Algarad and Amber Burch, who lived at the residence, have each been charged with one count of murder and accessory after the fact to murder.

According to arrest warrants, Algarad is accused of killing Wetzler in July 2009 and Burch is alleged to have helped Algarad bury the body. Then, in October 2009, Burch is alleged to have killed Welch and Algarad is alleged to have helped her with the burial, according to arrest warrants.
