    WA - Blanche and Russell Warren, Port Angeles, 1929

    Couple disappears in 1929. Lots of speculation, but little proof.

    A district Ranger looked into the evidence, got a lot of people involved, and DNA finally confirmed their findings in 2005!

    Excellent article on the case, the efforts, and how advances in technology made it possible to solve the mystery.

    It just goes to show how important it is to identify the remains. After 75 years, this family was still anxious.
    It also illustrates that there is always room for hope.
    I would have thought that the remains would have been buried by silt, or grown over by vegetation by now. But the dive team still somehow managed to find them. Kudos to that team.
    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?

    What an interesting story! I hope they can find Blanche's remains to make it all complete. This does give hope to all the other very old, frozen cases out there.
