Bethesda tunnel house fire victim's Facebook appears to hint at excavation (Photo)
Investigators continue to work the scene, where mysterious excavations and possible tunneling had been done, and explosives teams have been seen searching the property. Detectives have not yet characterized the nature of those excavations, and their purpose is also unknown.
However, a photo on a Facebook page appearing to be the victim's hints at some type of excavation. The photo, which is also set as the page's profile photo, shows an unidentified person wearing a respirator, hearing protection, and a hard hat who appears to be several feet below ground. A caption on the August 25 photo posting reads, "Undaneef deez skreetz."
Fox 5 reported on Thursday that it has learned Khafra was hired this summer to work on the excavation by the home's owner. The station's report characterizes the excavation as including tunnels and a "bunker." Reporter Paul Wagner also was able to obtain additional photos within the tunnels and bunker, including one in which he reports Khafra was wearing construction gear similar to that in the above Facebook photo.
