    The death of a girl who disappeared in 1985 at the age of 12 has been solved after her brother admitted to accidentally killing the girl and burying her body, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.

    The State Attorney's Office has decided not to file charges against David A. Lambert, who reportedly has confessed to investigators that he was responsible for the death of his 12-year-old sister, Martha Jean Lambert, in 1985.

    I'm not buying the brother's story:

    1. LE hasn't been able to locate Martha's remains.

    2. How is a 14 year old going to bury her that quickly and without detection?

    3. How is a 14 year old going to keep a secret like that for 25 years?

    'snippets'

    He said he panicked and buried his sister in a 3-foot-deep grave not far from the family home.


    David Lambert led investigators to the location in September, and extensive excavations and K-9 searches failed to turn up Martha's remains. Detectives said old structures and land in the area has been cleared over the years, which they believe removed or scattered any remains that may have existed.

    Why would he confess?

    Aside from the girl's death, the real tragedy is that the family will never have any real closure because the girl's body can never receive a proper burial. Her remains are probably scattered all over that property. As for the brother, I'm wondering why a 15 year old boy is 'playing' with his 12 year old sister at an 'abandoned' college. Most 15 year old boys are hanging with their buddies, not with their 12 year old sisters; and most 12 year old girls are playing with their Barbie dolls with their 12 year old friends (you know what I mean). What kind of game does a 15 year old boy play with his 12 year old sister on the property of an abandoned college that they can't play at home, and why were they fighting over a twenty dollar bill? This story has a lot of convenient gaps.
    Honestly, a small child`s body could be scattered due to animals and the elements after decades. This is why so many people are missing and their bodies aren`t found.

    ETA: Also from the news article
    "Our belief is the excavating done from that demolition several years ago has probably scattered the remains or removed the remains of Martha," said Mulligan.

    Have they found her body? What I have read on this indicated they haven't.

    They haven't found the body based on the statement in the article: Mulligan said finding Martha's body is a practically impossible task now.
