MIDLAND CITY, Ala. - Bomb technicians have found no more explosives in wrapping up their search of the rural Alabama property of Jimmy Lee Dykes, the man who shot dead a school bus driver and held a boy in an underground bunker for nearly a week.

Dykes was killed Monday by SWAT team members during a gunfight as officers rescued the kindergartner unharmed.

The FBI had said previously that Dykes rigged his bunker with two explosive devices that were safely removed by bomb experts.

FBI Special Agent Paul Bresson said in an email late Wednesday that the technicians found no other explosives in a search of the 100-acre property.

He said the body of the 65-year-old suspect was removed from the bunker after bomb experts completed their work. An autopsy is planned Thursday.
