    That is so sad. I'm glad they found her remains, but this is just so sad. We live in such a sick world.

    wow... unbelievable. If those fishermen hadn't gone fishing in that spot that day, she might never have been found. Sometimes it just takes a random stroke of chance to find someone.
    I hope her daughter, friends & family can find some comfort in the fact they will no longer have to wait for news, worry, and wonder. I've been following this case since the beginning... she sounds like she was a wonderful lady. I agree,, we live in a sick world and it seems to be getting sicker all the time. As always,, the question is WHY? ...WHY are there so many sick men out there who get a thrill out of killing an innocent person for reason at all... what is the point???

    One more question... they already had their eye on the guy who did it, for a long time.. so,, has he been arrested yet???
    I have to give the mother credit for contacting police. One thing that makes me sick is the prevelance of "momma's boys' mommas" who are so in denial of their sociopathic, criminal sons,, they will defend them to no end and insist their little babies aren't capable of hurting a fly. But this woman has the basic human decency to do what's right, for a change... regardless of how much it must hurt her to know the truth about her own offspring.

    You know reb, they may have just been waiting for a body. I hope they at least are able to prosecute whoever did this.

    Letter from Brandy Shipp

    My friends,

    There are no words to express the feelings and emotions the family and friends of my Mother, Summer Shipp, are experiencing after the recent news of the positively identified remains of our wonderful, precious Summer. The family needs some time to absorb this. We dearly appreciate all the emails and phone calls we have received, and please keep them coming! They are so very comforting in this horrific time. Your messages to the family can be sent to friendsofsummer@gmail.com and for any other inquiries, please contact the Independence Police Dep't. @816-325-7330.

    I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for your tremendous and ongoing support, prayers, and warm thoughts over the past 34 months. It is deeply appreciated more than you know. Now, we must hope and pray that the person responsible for this heinous crime is brought to justice.

    Sincerely,
    Brandy Shipp

    Prayers for the whole family. I hope they are able to establish a cause of death and prosecute the person responsible, if anyone was.

    Bump. Any news? I've looked, but I don't see anything about the cause of death. Saw a blog that says Jeff Sauerbry is nowhere to be found.

    Someone has been charged in connection with the murder of Summer. I am SHOCKED. I didn't think this one would ever be solved.

    I am happy that her daughter finally has some answers. The poor girl put in so much effort to get justice for her mother.

    A trial is scheduled to begin this week for a man accused of killing a Kansas City woman, who disappeared more than a decade ago while conducting door-to-door market research.

    Jeffrey S. Sauerbry is charged in the death of 54-year-old Summer Shipp...

    An Independence jury returned a not guilty verdict Thursday in the case of a man accused of murdering a door-to-door market researcher in 2004...

    Brandy Shipp, the victim’s daughter, watched the trial and held the hand of one of her supporters. She lowered her head when Baldwin showed jurors a photo of her mother’s skull.

    The verdict was disappointing but not a complete surprise, she said... “We would have liked to see justice for my mother,” she said. “But fortunately he is already doing life without parole in prison for another murder so he will never be able to do this to another person, and for that we are thankful.”

    The not guilty verdict in a Jackson County murder trial is still haunting one man who was an alternate juror...

    “It aches me that as a juror, as part of the jury team, we did not come out with the right conclusion,” said Glenn Crawford...

    “If his background had opened up in the court process, I know for a fact that would’ve sealed the deal for everybody else. I’m positive he would’ve gotten a conviction because of that,” Crawford said.
