    Reece seems to be an example of the type of predator who does not have an age preference.

    How is he an example? Name a known victim that was not in their late teens early 20s. There is a huge difference between 12 and 19.

    I have always believed, however, that whomever is responsible for the murder of Amber Hagerman in Dallas could be responsible for the murder of Smither, as well.

    TUESDAY

    Crews continue search for remains of Jessica Cain
    By Samantha Ptashkin - Reporter
    Posted: 3:03 PM, March 01, 2016 Updated: 6:12 PM, March 01, 2016

    HOUSTON - Crews returned to a field near Hobby Airport Tuesday morning to continue their search for the remains of a teenage girl who went missing in the late 1990s.

    [...]

    A childhood friend of Cain's stopped by the field Tuesday afternoon and placed some flowers on the fence, to honor her friend.

    On Monday a woman who was on the search team for Cain almost 20 years ago showed up to the field to place red and yellow ribbons on the fence. The red ribbon is for Cain. The yellow is for a girl named Laura Smither, who went missing months before Cain.

    TX Rangers: No evidence found yet in search for Jessica Cain
    By Kaitlin McCulley
    Tuesday, March 01, 2016 07:12PM

    HOUSTON (KTRK) --
    Investigators have not found a shred of evidence after a week of searching a southeast Houston field for the body of Jessica Cain, according to a DPS spokesman with the Texas Rangers.

    [...]

    James brought flowers and a card to the site and hung them on the fence.

    "When you're looking for somebody and you don't know where they're at, you think, is she here, or is she there," James said. "I would go by Galveston, Tiki Island, looking for her, go sit at her bench, her memorial."

    James is from Anahuac, where the community is coming together in support of the Cain family. They're planning a candlelight vigil Sunday, and a local t-shirt company is designing shirts in Cain's honor.

    HOUSTON (KTRK) --

    Search crews began its fifth day of searching for the body of Jessica Cain with a prayer.

    The crews stood in a circle at a property on East Orem Drive in southeast Houston. They bowed their heads as Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch appeared to lead them with a few words.

    The crime scene tape is back up after police taped off the only open area in the gate, and Cain's accused kidnapper, William Reece, is nowhere to be found today.

    If we think he is scared to face murder charges in OK why would he fess up to killing Jess and help locate her body..wouldn't he be charged with her murder as well? sounds like he'd be okay with a death sentence in Texas and just fears being moved to an OK prison and having to start at the bottom of the prison ladder again. He's made a name for himself in Huntsville, probably hard for him to imagine having to start all over again in a different prison. jmo

    A North Texas mother hopes she may finally learn the whereabouts of her child, who has been missing for almost two decades.

    Jan Bynum remembers the day her daughter, Kelli Cox, disappeared as if it was yesterday; even though it was 19 years ago. “That day is crystal clear,” she said reflecting. “My last words to Kelli was, ‘I love you, honey. Have a good day. I’ll talk to you this afternoon.’”

    Cox was last seen on July 15, 1997. The 20-year-old University of North Texas student had stopped at a gas station in Denton, across the street from the police station near downtown, to make a call on a pay phone.

    This has to be grueling for Jessica's family. My heart really goes out to them. I guess Reece is just loving this.

    Barn demolished at Jessica Cain body search site in southeast Houston
    Friday, March 04, 2016 01:05PM

    HOUSTON (KTRK) --
    A barn has been demolished at the site where authorities are searching for the body of missing teenager Jessica Cain.

    When authorities first started digging on the site they were concentrating on an area just in front of the barn on the site. Now they are looking at the area where the barn used to stand.

    [...]

    Jessica Cain's accused kidnapper William Reece is back on the property today. We have seen him here over the last few days.

    If Reece knows he didn't murder Jessica, or knows he murdered her but buried her elsewhere, or has made a deal to avoid the death penalty if he leads LE to the body then he isn't necessarily concerned about the death penalty in TX.

    All true, nutkin. This case is reminiscent of the prosecution strategy used in at least three other serial killers that come to mind; Green River Gary Ridgeway, Brandon Scott Lavergne, and Henry Le Lucas; Otis Toole's lover..

    Rain thwarted the search last week.
    ---------------

    Authorities have been searching for her remains in a southeast Houston field off Orem Drive.

    Authorities say they will place water pumps into the deepest holes hoping to keep the site as intact as possible until they can resume the search.

    Human skeletal remains found in search for Jessica Cain
    Josh Chapin, KHOU 11 News
    2 hours ago

    HOUSTON – Authorities have dug up human skeletal remains in a field where they’ve been searching for a teenage girl who went missing for nearly 20 years.

    The medical examiner’s office is investigating whether the remains belong to Jessica Cain, who went missing from Texas City in 1997.

    Police discover remains at dig site for girl missing since '97

    The discovery of skeletal remains in a field in south Houston could mean investigators discovered the final resting place of a Galveston teenager who disappeared almost two decades ago, or it could signal the start of an entirely new homicide investigation.

    "Right now, we have no clue who this person is," said Richard Martinez, a detective with the Houston Police Department's homicide division.

    [...]

    After weeks of searching the field, about 2:30 p.m. Friday a backhoe operator at the site signaled the discovery of the apparent remains. An anthropologist and other analysts with the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences were called to the scene.

    "Right now, they're in the process of recovering those remains," Martinez said. "There is enough there to know that it's a body."

    He said the remains were found at least four feet below the surface.

    One of the stories says they will begin digging at another site where they believe he buried another body next week. But, who could that be? I am assuming they are meaning in the Houston area, so likely isn't Kelli Cox.

    Ok, it seems they've already searched a field in Brazoria County for Kelli Cox, but why would he move her so far from Denton? That is pretty dangerous.

    According to law enforcement sources, police will begin digging at another site in the Houston area next week. Investigators think another victim of Reece could be buried there.

    I have little doubt he is responsible for Laura Smither's murder. My question is when did he show up on LE's radar for that crime. Did they question him shortly after and he then went on to abduct the others or did he not come to their attention until after he was arrested for Ms Sapaugh's attempted abduction.
