    omg - had to be someone who worked there or knew the layout

    I'm from the OKC metro area. This is not a great area of town. I wonder how old the child was.

    I can't think of any unsolved missing children in the last 5 years or so...Can anyone else?

    The article said the school has been closed since 1987. I wonder if the bones/shoes have been there that long?

    No, it doesn't say they are children's shoes.

    I SAID Children's shoes so I went back and looked...sure enough, they've changed it from Children's Shoes to Tennis Shoes. Perhaps the media jumped to conclusions? At any rate, I changed the title of the post.

    The link itself still says "childrens" so the story must have changed -- sounds like they might not even be sure they're human bones.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    It is saying now the bones are probably not human.

    Since they were hidden in a crawl space, maybe even longer.
