BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Officers were digging Thursday for murder evidence at a south Bakersfield home.

Officers were tipped to the alleged burial site at the Grass Creek Drive home two days ago. Eyewitness News didn't see any police activity at that home Thursday.

While officers were at the Grass Creek Drive home, 45-year-old Frank Valles arrived and was taken to the police department for questioning. He was later arrested on suspicion of murder.

A second unidentified person was interviewed by police.

Through the interviews, detectives learned of a burial site at the Curnow Road home.

Police haven't released any information regarding the identity of a victim or when, why or how the alleged murder occurred.
