    I wonder if they have tried using Cadaver dogs to find her remains? Thanks for posting Romulus.
    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.
