MIDLAND CITY, Ala. (AP) - The FBI says bomb technicians will continue to sweep the property of a kidnapper left dead after officers raided a bunker to free a 5-year-old hostage in Alabama.

Meanwhile, Dale County Coroner Woodrow Hilboldt said Tuesday that officials had not yet removed the body of 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes from the underground shelter. Hilboldt says he does not yet know how Dykes died because he has not yet examined the body.

Hilboldt says the body will be taken to Montgomery for an autopsy, though he did not know exactly when that may happen.

FBI special agent Jason Pack says teams will collect evidence at the scene in rural Midland City after officers make sure there are no explosives on the 100-acre property.
