    TX - Deborah Applegate, 46, slain, body burned, Porter, 5 April 2010

    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...n/7018383.html

    Montgomery County sheriff's officials have arrested a 26-year-old man in connection with the discovery of a charred body in a trash can.

    The body was found about 3:30 p.m. Friday near the Eastex Freeway and Wilshire, officials said.

    A tip Friday afternoon led Montgomery County Detectives to a dirt road running to the west off the southbound feeder of US59 between Roman Forest ands FM1485.

    The information they had was there was a dead body on the path. Detectives discovered a burned plastic trash can with the remains of what appears to be that of a female inside it. Judge Metts also arrived at the scene and ordered the body was taken to the Southwest Forensic Center in Conroe. Additional detectives arrived as did Harris County detectives and Houston Police. The Forensic Unit was also dispatched to the scene which started the almost ten hour investigation.

    If another inmate gave the tip about this victim, why would the tipster not know the victim's identity? Now, they are reporting that LE doesn't know if the victim is male or female.

    Robert Ellis Hinton II also is charged with abuse of a corpse without legal authority for burning the remains of Deborah Applegate, a 46-year-old disabled widow and a mother of three.

    From February 2012:

    http://www.khou.com/story/news/2014/07/18/11673250/

    When investigators found the remains of 46-year-old Deborah Applegate in Porter in 2010, there was little more left of the slain mother of three than a pile of bones. But a real-life CSI forensic science lab in Montgomery County, one of just a few in the nation, helped close the case last year...

    Examining the bones, Bytheway pointed to a triangular piece [that] was not burned at all. That piece was obviously dislodged before the body was exposed to heat, she said. In other words, the skull was fractured before the corpse was set on fire... They went in there with that information, Hey you struck this gal, we know it...

    It ended up in a post-plea confession. He confessed, Bytheway said. Hinton was sentenced to 30 years in prison for murder.
