NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WHAS11) -- Woodbourne Drive was the most quiet it had been in nearly three weeks because of Kentucky Derby weekend, according to neighbors, but police returned to the neighborhood Monday around 8 a.m. to resume the search of William Clyde Gibson's backyard.

Investigators aren't showing any signs of leaving the home anytime. It's now a waiting game for police to release any information, and neighbors are watching closely.

Police turned their attention to Gibson's front yard, using radar equipment to mark the spots of possible evidence with spray paint and flags.
 
"It's kind of nerve-racking, all of these people out here digging knowing that there could be something else in the yard over here," neighbor Melodie Schultz said. "I guess that's kind of a scary thought."
 
Police aren't revealing their plans in an investigation so-far defined by shock and secrecy.

Gibson faces murder charges for the deaths of Christine Whitis and Karen Hodella. There's been no more digging since Stephanie Kirk's remains were discovered in his backyard 10 days ago.
 
"I've been following it on the internet hoping, I looked actually today, I said, 'this gets to be addicting at some point, because you lived next door, it's like I'd really like to know what's going to go on, what really happened,'" added Schultz.
 
Gibson has still not been charged with Kirk's death as authorities wait to release the medical examiner's report.
