TRURO, N.S. — Police investigating the slaying of a Dalhousie University physics student in Halifax say they are focusing their search efforts on a property in Truro, N.S.

Police say the property (off Marshland Drive) is part of the same search warrant officers have been acting on since Tuesday.

They say officers will be conducting searches in the Truro area from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. this weekend.

On Thursday evening, searchers found an unspecified number of items of "potential interest" in Lower Truro.

Police wouldn't reveal any information about the objects, but said they were being analyzed.

They said based on preliminary analysis, investigators believe they are connected to the death of 22-year-old Taylor Samson, whose remains have not been found.

William Michael Sandeson, a varsity track athlete who was about to start classes at Dalhousie University's medical school, was charged with first-degree murder four days after Samson was reported missing earlier this month.

A profile on Dalhousie University's website lists Sandeson's hometown as Truro.
