STONEHAM, Mass. ( -- Investigators searching an area near Spot Pond in Stoneham Thursday said they did not find anything suspicious.

Mass. State Police set up a perimeter in a wooded area near the pond and searched for nearly five hours, but did not find anything leading them to believe there was a shallow grave at the site.
