    "Judge sets January trial date for suspect in 'Killing Fields' murder
    by KFDM News
    CHAMBERS COUNTY, Texas – A judge has set a January 7 trial date for a man charged with capital murder in the 1996 beating, sexual assault and strangulation of 13-year-old Krystal Jean Baker in Chambers County, KFDM News reports.
    Investigators say Kevin Edison Smith, 46, is a person of interest in several murders of young girls and women in the Houston to Galveston I-45 corridor, an area known as the "Killing Fields."
    "Baker’s body was found under the Trinity River Bridge off Interstate 10 in March of 1996 after she was last seen at a convenience store in Texas City. The case went cold after investigators couldn’t find any suspects in her murder."

    CHAMBERS COUNTY SHERIFF: LOUISIANA MAN CONFESSES TO KILLING 13-YEAR-OLD TEXAS CITY GIRL 14 YEARS AGO
    By SCOTT REESE WILLEY

    Hometown Press

    A Louisiana man has confessed to killing a 13-year-old Texas City girl 14 years ago, Chambers County Sheriff Joe LaRive announced Thursday.

    Kevin Edison Smith, 45, confessed on Oct. 19 to the slaying of Krystal Jean Baker in June 1996, LaRive told the media via email.

    A state medical lab has confirmed earlier this month that Smith's DNA matched the DNA found on the dress of Baker, whose body was found beneath a Chambers County bridge in 1996, LaRive reported Friday.

    I also would like to see his DNA tested against any DNA in the cases of Laura Smither and Amber Hagerman. He has lived/worked in both Friendswood and Arlington around the times of their murders.

    Is suspect in teen girl's murder linked to any 'Killing Fields' cases?
    October 27, 2011 12:14 PM
    Lindsey Kovacevich

    Could he be linked to some of the cases from "The Killing Fields?"

    Just off of Interstate 45, south of Houston, is a small to mid-sized industrial town called Texas City. If you're not from Texas, you might drive by the town without giving it a second glance. Most of the people work at refineries and chemical plants. They make news when something goes wrong there. In 1996, something else made news.

    Welder arrested in 1996 killing of Texas City girl
    September 24, 2010
    Her daughter, Krystal Jean Baker, last was seen as she stormed out of her grandmother’s home in Texas City after a family disagreement about 3 p.m. on March 5th, 1996. Two hours later, her strangled body was found near the Interstate 10 feeder road at the Trinity River in Chambers County.

    Two weeks passed before authorities linked the body to the missing teen in Texas City.

    “They kept calling her a runaway,’’ Escamilla said, adding that “she was too girly-girly to be a runaway.’’
