    TX - Bexar County - Human Remains, March 2004 - Sarah Sampley, 20

    Skeletal Remains Found In 2004 Identified

    SAN ANTONIO -- Skeletal remains discovered in southwest Bexar County in March 2004 belong to a missing 20-year-old San Antonio woman, authorities said.


    Dental records and a facial reconstruction conducted by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation helped Bexar County sheriff's deputies confirm that the remains were those of Sarah Anne Sampley, who has been missing since August 2000.


    Pieces of bone and a skull with braces were found in a cloth bag by a property owner who was cleaning a ditch in the 15000 block of Trawalter Road.


    Detectives believe Sampley was killed at another location.

    You know I don't understand why it took so long to id her. Do dentist's mark braces like they do dentures? And if not, why not?
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    That is what I was wondering. I've seen some cases on CTV where a person was identified by her dentist because of her braces. It sure took a long time but that must have been because of the facial reconstruction. They will probably never find out who murdered her or even how it was done. Poor thing.

    I hope her family has found some peace.
