    TX - Courtney Clayton, 7, murdered 9-2-1988, Stamford, TX


    This is a Texas Rangers/Jones County cold case that law enforcement holds hopes of solving.

    The article linked above was published today.

    Courtney's body was found six months later by hunters in neighboring Shackelford County. Stamford is in Jones County.

    I searched but could not locate an existing thread for Cortney, so apologies in advance if I missed it.

    The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
