Lavalette, W.Va. (AP) -- A team of volunteers is resuming its search for the remains of a Marshall University student killed by two fugitives during a multistate crime spree in 2002.

Founder Monica Caison says Community United Effort - Center for Missing Persons is concentrating on a small area around railroad tracks near Lavalette in Wayne County.

Caison says the latest search for Samantha Burns' remains is based on new information given to the group by Chadrick Fulks.

Fulks and Brandon Basham were convicted of killing the 19-year-old burns and 44-year-old Alice Donovan of Galivants Ferry, S.C., after they escaped from a Kentucky jail in November 2002.

Fulks helped lead authorities in January to Donovan's remains in South Carolina.
