    Missing woman's car found
    By Deanna Boyd
    Star-Telegram Staff Writer

    FORT WORTH -- The Nissan Sentra of a retired Texas Christian University professor who disappeared Friday while running an errand was found Sunday out of state, a police spokesman said Monday.

    Lt. Abdul Pridgen said police are working with authorities from that state and the FBI to gather more leads. He declined to say which state the car was found in and whether it was abandoned or occupied at the time of its recovery.

    "There are too many aspects of this case that just the hint of information on one account or the other may jeopardize the investigation," Pridgen said.

    Laura Lee Crane, 77, vanished Friday after leaving her Bellaire Drive South home about 11:30 a.m. to go to a nearby Tom Thumb grocery store. Police have said the woman stopped briefly at a friend's house and has not been seen since.

    "There's nothing to indicate that she is not alive," Pridgen said.

    Family members have said that since Crane's disappearance, the woman's ATM card has been used to withdraw cash.

    "We do know that someone had her credit cards and used them," Pridgen said. "She may have used them and we don't know. We know they were used and are following up information in regards to their usage."

    I hope they find her. Scary though since they found her car and not her with it. Hope she's alive and ok somewhere. She's very pretty!

    They've arrested an ex-con and convicted prostitute who were driving Laura Crane's car in Oklahoma City, but Mrs. Crane has not yet been found.

    My prayers are with her and her family.

    Media is now reporting that they may have found Mrs. Crane's body just north of the Texas/Oklahoma border. NO ID has yet been made.

    My prayers are with her and her family.

    Bas---- that the culprit is! I hope someone teaches him a "little lesson" once he's caught.

    This just breaks my heart. She looks like such a sweet woman, one that would help a stranger out....I hope that wasn't the cause of her probable demise. Such a shame.
    Just My Humble Opinion

    This is so sad. The authorities just confirmed that the body they found is Mrs. Crane.

    thankfully they caught the two responsible.

    This crime makes me sick at my stomach

    The scumbags who kidnapped and killed this woman of such honor and accomplishment do not even halfway understand what pain they have inflicted on many- the TCU alumni, Mrs. Crane's family and many others. I hope the ex-con and prostitute receive exactly what they deserve for this henious crime- the death penalty, as soon as possible. This is one of the cases where I think Texas should either revive hanging or the electric chair for at least such a sentence to be carried out. Such an atrocity as this deserves the fullest degree of justice allowed by law!

    My mom remembers Ms Crane from her days of studying speech pathology at TCU. Says she was an incredible person who did so much for the community and influenced so many students who eventually became great teachers.

    It is so sad to hear about a life being taken so suddenly like this, and even more frightening when you are very familiar with the area in which it happened. This was a woman going to the grocery store during the middle of the day in a decent part of town - and she wasn't driving a flashy car or anything. Makes me remember that we cannot take a second of our lives for granted. Thoughts & Prayers go out to the family and friends of Ms Crane.

    Exactly. She didn't deserve to be set upon by these two pathetic excuses for humanity. She seemed like a wonderful woman who led an exemplary life only to have it end at the hands of two pieces of scum.

    I hope they get the death penalty.
