FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. (AP) - Police in North Carolina have revived an investigation into the death of a woman whose body was found in a ditch nearly a decade ago.

The News & Observer reported Tuesday that Fuquay-Varina police have asked to search a man’s home and his truck as part of the investigation into the death of 41-year-old Sandra Denise Thomas. Thomas was last seen alive early one morning in 2011. Her body was found hours later, partially clothed and covered in mud.

She had injuries to her head, neck, face, arms and ankles that police have said suggested a “motor vehicle may have been involved in her death.” Police say Thomas called the man that morning before leaving a party. They hope the search uncovers DNA evidence linking the man to Thomas.
