Washoe County Sheriff's Lt. Tom Green says they found the human remains at the home in Spanish Springs after executing a search warrant Wednesday in the investigation into the disappearance of 56-year-old Colleen Muhl.
Her husband, Gerald Muhl, originally told police his wife died in California during a visit in mid-February. He was found with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound near their home on March 3 the night after investigators told him his story wasn't adding up.
Green told the Reno Gazette-Journal ( http://tinyurl.com/l2eon44) detectives acted on a tip that he'd been seen moving rocks in the home's backyard.
