UPDATE: A digging investigation at a Cedar Rapids home might be linked to a suspect in the 2014 case of a missing Marion man.

According to a financial affidavit, 300 Cherry Hill Road in Cedar Rapids was once listed as a home address for William Yancey. That happened back in July of 2016.

Yancey, along with two others, are facing charges in the robbery that resulted in the death of James Booher.

Tony Morfitt, with the United State's Attorney's Office Northern District of Iowa, says authorities are not out at the Cherry Hill residence today. He did not comment on if they found anything.

Morfitt does confirm the Linn County Sheriff's Office, the Cedar Rapids Police department, Department of Criminal Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and FBI are investigating.
