    KY - Barren Co., Child Skeletal UP100, 2-3, in suitcase on lake shore, Aug'89



    http://www.kentuckystatepolice.org/c...3coldcase6.php

    The Kentucky State Police request help in resolving the murder of a 2 Ĺ year old biracial female child, with an estimated year of birth between 1984-1987. The child was found on August 20, 1989 in the Skaggs Creek section of Barren River Lake. The remains were skeletal and were in a suitcase...

    Post received 3 quick calls from someone claiming to be an attorney who asked that immunity be granted to a woman who had information about the child. After those 3 calls, no more were received.

    Marion estimated the suitcase had been in the lake for at least three months, “judging from the decomposition of the body,” the article said. The suitcase, a good quality American Tourister model, was in good condition.

    At that time, the body was being investigated as a homicide because “the skull appears to have been fractured and we are continuing on that basis at the present time,” Marion said...

    In the original findings from the ME, the child was identified as female, but Phillips said they are no longer assuming that it’s female because at that age, children’s structure is so similar it’s hard to tell them apart.

    Sad that no one ever came forward, the woman obviously had something to do with it, but you would think someone else in her family would notice a 2 year old missing

    I really hope they look at Cherie Barnes. She was born in 1984 and she is biracial.

    I agree with Jake479. I'm of the opinion that Cherie is deceased, given the background of her stepfather.

    Yes there is no way that kid is alive. He prostituted her mother, no way he cared about her child.

    How would they even make a match? The only thing available is dental, and chances are a child that age hasn't been to a dentist yet unless they had really bad teeth problems. I think my son's first visit to the dentist was when he was four or so.

    Sadly there are no dentals on Cherie - seems like making a match would be a long shot

    They'd have to get DNA from her maternal family.

    The UP has insufficient data for DNA testing unfortunately.

    I know it says biracial on this little JD's doe network page, but I always thought Emily Sawyer was a good match?
    Or possibly Deisy Herrera?
