FBI using drones to fly over and ‘study’ Jimmy Lee Dykes bunker
Now the standout enters day 7 and the FBI is now flying drones overhead.
Drones are flying over the homemade underground bunker this morning near Midland City, Ala., where police say Dykes is holding Ethan hostage. Officials have not released the boy’s last name.
“It gives them more time to study this bunker,” former FBI profiler and ABC News consultant Brad Garrett said. “Does Mr. Dykes have any explosives? Has he booby trapped the doors if ever they tried to get in?”
Negotiators have been communicating with Dykes through a ventilation pipe that leads to the bunker, and have used it to send the child comfort items, including a red Hot Wheels car, coloring books, cheese crackers, potato chips and medicine.
