The remains of a 16-year-old girl sat in a sheriff department's evidence room for years before investigators took the proper steps to identify them.

The family of Robin Lynn Farnsworth received an apology Thursday from White County Sheriff Pat Garrett. Robin disappeared nine years ago and only recently were her remains identified through DNA.

Good feature article from October 2009:


The day after Kenyatta’s body was discovered, two of her classmates - James Derrick Grubbs, 17, and Donnie Ray Tempel, 18 - were arrested on capital murder charges...

On April 4, 1995, Donnie Tempel asked to speak to a jailer. He and Grubbs were awaiting trial in the White County jail... Tempel told the jailer, Odom said, that Grubbs had taken him to a barn on a dirt road near Russell shortly before Kenyatta’s death. Inside the barn, Grubbs lifted a pile of newspapers to reveal Robin Lynn Farnsworth’s badly beaten body...

Johnny Johnson looked down at just the right moment on Dec. 28, 1997, while deer hunting in a wooded area off Old Russell Road, not a mile from his home. “It was a human skull with no jawbone sitting on top of the ground. There was a red sweater with tassels that barely had dirt over it. And you could see some fingernails laying in the dirt that were painted purple,” Johnson said... [T]he remains were found within 100 yards of the barn Tempel described in his 1995 jailhouse statement.
