SARASOTA, Fla. --  Following the release of new documents by the FBI in the Sarasota Saudi family investigation, we still know nothing new about the family and their suspected ties to the 9/11 terrorists.

The FBI released the 31 new pages about the Prestancia residents who quickly abandoned their home weeks before terror attacks.  A judge ruled Federal authorities had to turn the papers over to the courts, following a Freedom of Information lawsuit filed by the online newspaper The Broward Bulldog.

Four more documents are expected to be released next week.  So far, no new information has been found in the papers.  An investigation began after the 9/11 attacks when it was learned a number of the suspected terrorists had visited the Sarasota area home.

Earlier this month the FBI told a court they have not been able to locate any more investigation documents on the Saudi family.  They have already looked through more than 80,000 papers.
