A search warrant made public Tuesday in the case of a missing woman and a 4-year-old boy says what appears to be blood, a bullet, and shell casings were found at the home where they were last seen.

The warrant is an application for a second search of a home on Pear Tree Lane filed March 29.

It's the house where 4-year-old Jadon Higganbothan and 28-year-old Antoinetta McKoy were last seen late last year.

McKoy and Higgenbothan reportedly lived in the home with Higgenbothan's mother Vania Sisk and several other women and children, who were members of a so-called cult called the "Black Hebrew Israelites," before the group suddenly moved to Colorado.

Other search warrants previously obtained by ABC11 from Colorado indicate that investigators believe the boy was killed possibly by a man named Pete Moses Jr., who police believe is the leader of the group. Moses does not face any charges related to Higganbothan or McKoy.

While Durham police continue to maintain their investigation is a missing person's case, the warrant released Tuesday says "according to numerous witnesses … Moses and Sisk were directly involved in the murder of a juvenile and an adult."

The warrant also states there were signs of "overt cleaning in the areas of the residence where these crimes were stated to have occurred."

During the second search, investigators recovered a long list of items including: birth records for Higgenbothan, a computer, carpet, and "swabs of a dark red substance."
