THE United States Federal Bureau of Investigation has shown interest in the baffling deaths of Texas couple David and Michelle Paul.

According to Michelle’s father, Mac Calanog, an official from the US embassy told him the FBI had “called to enquire” about the case.

Mr Calanog, who is also talking to forensic experts in Nevada where he resides, said he was happy when he heard of the FBI’s interest.

“We are waiting for reports from Australia about the tests on toxins, and I have wanted an independent forensic investigation from the beginning,” he said.

“I have been searching here and was so happy when told the FBI had made enquiries.

“They have the technology and the expertise to find answers.”
