11 News obtained this home video of Sunday's implosion. Is someone buried underneath the massive pile of rubble that once was the Crowne Plaza Hotel? Some workers in the Texas Medical Center, where Sunday’s implosion took place, insist they saw someone enter the building just before the charges were set off.
And 11 News obtained a home video that may be what police are using to investigate those claims.
It would appear that a door closes just as the initial explosions for the implosion get underway. The video obtained from 11 News was taken from St. Luke's Medical Tower directly across from the hotel. One person called 11 News saying they believe this is the home video that started the investigation.
Police did not confirm that, but they do say the home video prompted the investigation was taken from the same building.
The Harris County medical examiner, HPD Homicide, crime scene investigators and crews with cadaver dogs all worked the scene until around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. Officials said the search would resume Thursday morning.
Cherry Demolition confirmed what police were looking for late in the day. The company said a home video given over to police led them to believe someone may have entered the building shortly before the series of blasts obliterated it.
“We are working diligently with the officers of the police department,” stated Leonard Cherry, an owner of Cherry Demolition. “We certainly hope that this is not true, but are cooperating in any way that we can.”
A home video obtained by 11 News may be the images police are reviewing to see if someone was inside the Crowne Plaza when it was brought down Sunday. Video posted on LiveLeak.com
