Macon police returned to search again at the apartment complex where investigators say Lauren Giddings may have been murdered last month.

Police spokeswoman Jami Gaudet said several police officers were "following clues" inside apartment No. 4, home of Stephen McDaniel. Police have identified him as a person of interest in Giddings' death. Her body was found outside the building on June 30.

Two police cruisers and a crime-scene van were parked outside 1058 Georgia Ave. in downtown Macon Wednesday afternoon.

Just before 6 p.m. officers removed several large brown paper bags and a large storage bin from the apartment, resealed McDaniel's apartment with a "Do Not Enter" sign, and then left.

Gaudet would not say why police returned to the apartment.  

She said investigators "felt like they needed to come back out here."

"They'll be back again and again and again" until they've exhausted all leads in the case, Gaudet said.

Gaudet said police are still awaiting forensic test results from the FBI's crime lab in Quantico, Va.

But she said last week that investigators would return to the scene if the FBI asked for more evidence.
