Search continues in Mo. sex abuse case

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) - Investigators have seized more computers and videotapes as they investigate claims from several family members who say they were sexually abused as children by adult relatives.

The items were taken Friday when authorities returned to the Independence home of 77-year-old Burrell Mohler Sr. Col. Ben Kenney of the Jackson County Sheriff's Office says there is a belief that "some of these assaults are on those tapes."

A warrant says the alleged victims remembered having to pose for pictures in "a sexual and provocative manner." Court documents say an earlier search of the Independence house netted magazine incest porn, videotapes and computers. Mohler Sr. faces various charges along with his four sons and his brother. Sixty-five videotapes were found at the home of one of the sons.
