(KNZA)--A multiple day search of a Holton property, in connection with a reopened 22-year-old cold case, concluded Thursday with an arrest.

Multiple agencies served a search warrant Tuesday morning on a residence in the 400 block of East 6th Street stemming from a missing person investigation and an investigation into the death of another person.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse, in a release, said more than 60 law enforcement officers, scientists and subject matter experts, took part in the search of the 3.7-acre property, with numerous pieces of evidence collected.

Morse said a resident of the property, 64-year-old Rex Larrison, was arrested on a charge of criminal use of an explosive and booked into the Jackson County Jail.

Russian immigrant Yulia Shevtensko Larrison went missing in 2001, while Elena Kristova Larrison, also a Russian immigrant, was killed in a reported 2006 Holton accident. Morse says those investigations continue.

If anyone has any information regarding either of these two cases, they are asked to contact the Jackson County Sheriff- Office at 785-364-2251 or the KBI at 1-800-KS-CRIME. Anonymous tips can be submitted online at kbi.ks.gov.
