Local law enforcement and the FBI are investigating a site linked to the 2015 murder of a mother and her child.

Eureka Mayor Nick Castleton was out riding his ATV Saturday in Juab County when he saw investigators gathered near what looked like a grave.

Castleton said the Orem Police Department, the Juab County Sheriff's Office and FBI investigators were in a remote area near Silver City.

A spokesman for the police department said the activity was linked to the murders of Emily Almiron and her three-year-old son Gabriel.

Police would not confirm that the area they were investigating contained a gravesite, but said more information about what they found would probably be released later today.
