CLEVELAND -- The Violent Crimes Task force searched Elias Acevedo's former home at 2610 Vega Avenue on Aug. 30.
On Friday they returned after workers remodeling the house discovered women's underwear in the ceiling. Acevedo lived in the downstairs part of the house in the mid-90s.
Worker Bailey Conley says he was tearing out the plaster ceiling in the front upstairs room when all of a sudden about fifteen pairs of women's underwear fell down from the ceiling.
The attic is above and near a hole in the floor that the underwear may have fallen through into the ceiling crawl space.
Cleveland Police, FBI and Sheriff's Deputies returned to the house to collect any other additional evidence.
Whether or not it's connected to Acevedo's case remains to be seen.
He is facing nearly 300 counts of kidnapping and rape, as well as two murder charges for Pamela Pemberton and Christina Adkins.
The evidence was sent to the Bureau of Criminal Investigation for further testing.
