The FBI drew attention while conducting an investigation at a residence on Gay Way in Vestavia Hills on Wednesday. Agents will not comment on what the investigation entails but say that residents are not in any danger.
Neighbors say agents have been on scene since 7 a.m. Wednesday morning. They left the scene around 10 p.m. Agents with the Evidence Recovery Unit collected and bagged evidence and took photographs. We do not know what type of evidence they are collected, but approximately a dozen agents left with close to 20 evidence boxes.
Many people in the area became worried when they saw the special agents with masks on their faces and went to the home to watch. It also caused a major traffic jam on Gay Way.
For Joann Oliver, seeing all of it was very hard. She and her husband built the home in 1966 and sold it in 1985. It is something she never thought she'd see in Vestavia Hills.
"I've got tears in my eyes right now. It's just really sad, but the house has been going down for years," said Oliver.
The FBI generally does not comment on investigations, so it may be sometime before we know. Check back to MyFoxAl.com for updates as this story develops.
