    Kristin Smart investigation continues 6 months after Cal Poly excavation

    http://www.sanluisobispo.com/news/lo...136300703.html

    Almost six months after the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office made a surprise announcement that it would excavate a Cal Poly hillside in light of a new “lead” in the Kristin Smart disappearance investigation, officials continue to evaluate “items of interest” found during the dig.

    On Friday, the Sheriff’s Office released the following statement: “The Sheriff’s Office continues to assess and review the results of the search operation at Cal Poly and develop strategies for moving forward with the investigation. We ask that we all continue to support the Smart family and would encourage anybody with information related to the case to please share it through Crime Stoppers. This investigation remains active but there are no further updates at this time.”

    Civil lawsuit filed by family of Kristin Smart against Paul Flores remains ongoing

    http://www.ksby.com/story/35271495/c...emains-ongoing

    The ongoing civil lawsuit against Paul Flores, a person of interest in the 1996 disappearance of Kristin Smart, remains just that - ongoing.

    Attorneys for both sides were back in San Luis Obispo County Superior Court Thursday morning for a progress hearing.

    Smart family attorney Jim Murphy says that while the progress hearings are usually just continued for another year, they are still important, as the lead investigator from the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office on the case at the time meets with the judge to provide an update on the investigation and what has taken place over the past year.

    Since the investigation into Smart's disappearance remains open and no arrests have been made, the judge continued the hearing again to next year.
    On May 25, 2002, six years to the day after the Cal Poly freshman vanished, a judge granted the Smart family's request to declare Kristin legally dead.

    Her family filed the wrongful death lawsuit against Flores just three days later and the case has been ongoing ever since.

    Last September, a search of the Cal Poly hillside in connection with Smart's disappearance took place, but authorities have not disclosed what, if anything, was discovered to aid in their investigation. The sheriff's office said Thursday all aspects of the case are still being assessed and reviewed.

    Thanks for the update! I had not heard an update on this case in quite some time. I wonder what, if anything, LE is learning from their dig.

    Kristin has been missing for 21 years now.

    Family starts scholarship to honor Kristin Smart's memory

    http://www.ksby.com/story/35512110/f...n-smart-legacy

    For the last 20 years, May 25 has been a day of remembrance, hope, and sadness for the Smart family. Today, the family is turning over a new leaf.

    "When you think about Kristin, you think about things that aren't being resolved, things that aren't happening, and so this is a way, a shift to focus on her life," Smart said.

    For a family that has lived a nightmare for 21 years not knowing the whereabouts of their loved one, Smart says this will keep her memory alive.

    "When she lost her life, we sort of got lost in law enforcement, fighting for justice, fighting for Kristin," Smart said. "So this isn't a fight, this is a giveback, so I think we're sort of putting our hands out and letting the direction take us towards her."

    The scholarship site is expected to launch on Thursday, May 25. For more information, visit kristinsmart.org.

    It seems incredible to me that Flores has not been charged. I guess the only reason is that the cadaver dog's alerting on his mattress wasn't admissible. If not for that, I think they would have been locked up 20 years ago.

    Sheriff’s Office calls dig for Kristin Smart beneficial — but won’t say why

    http://www.sanluisobispo.com/news/lo...171678792.html

    Last September’s excavation of a Cal Poly hillside was beneficial to its investigation into the 1996 disappearance of freshman Kristin Smart, the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office says. But it won’t say what — if anything — was gained from the four-day operation.

    “This investigation remains active but there are no further updates at this time,” Sheriff’s Office spokesman Tony Cipolla wrote in an email response to questions from The Tribune on Wednesday. “Every major effort to bring resolution to this investigation, including the excavation conducted a year ago, has in one way or another proven to be beneficial.”

    If you are referring to the video segment, the one about Kristin is after the first news item.
