Lyndsay's backpack recently found near unidentified remains at a building site.
As Lyndsay's body was recovered in 2004, whose bones are these? What are the chances that William Matheson disposed of Lyndsay's backpack in the same place another perp has left a body? Weird. I hope they'll be able to identify the remains...I'll check if a thread has been started...
