MS - Katherine Lowery, 27, Olive Branch, 2 February 1999
Prosecutors try to tie Rawlins inmate to missing woman
Investigators found a skull Saturday, which might reopen the case against Steven DeLoge.
CHEYENNE - For years now, prosecutors have considered Steven DeLoge a suspect in the disappearance of his girlfriend.
He moved to Cheyenne shortly after Katherine Lowery went missing in Mississippi back in 1999.
After months of investigation, the case against DeLoge grew cold.
But DeLoge, whom investigators have also identified as Sheldon Van Houte, was convicted in 2000 of repeatedly raping Lowery's 8-year-old daughter.
He is now serving six consecutive life sentences in the Wyoming State Penitentiary in Rawlins.
On Saturday, Mississippi investigators say they discovered something that may have restarted their stalled investigation. A skull was found in a wooded area just miles away from where Lowery used to live.
Detectives scoured the wooded area when Lowery first went missing, but nothing ever turned up. Now, they are working to verify whether the skull is that of the 27-year-old woman, who was last seen near the place where the skull was recovered.
Investigators at the time said Lowery hadn't been seen or heard from since February 1999 and have since classified her disappearance as a possible homicide.

After she was born in 1962, Elizabeth Eisel was put up for adoption. When her adoptive mother and brother were killed in a car accident in 1981, Elizabeth became interested in tracking down her biological family. She soon located her birth mother’s son, Steven DeLoge, and eventually moved to Bellevue, Washington.
Sometime in September of 1985, Elizabeth disappeared, leaving all her personal belongings behind. Because she was estranged from the rest of her adoptive family, she was not actually reported missing until 1988.It turned out that even though Elizabeth and Steven were half-siblings, they became romantically involved soon after they met and had a son together. When the couple’s relationship began to deteriorate in 1985, they both started seeing other people. After a violent argument, Elizabeth planned to break up with Steven and move in with her new boyfriend, but she soon vanished. Steven claimed that Elizabeth decided to run off and abandon their son, but he himself would abandon the child a few months later when he moved to Idaho with another woman.
In 1999, Steven was living under an assumed name in Mississippi with a woman named Katherine Lowery when he became a suspect in her disappearance. Shortly thereafter, Steven was charged with sexually abusing Lowery’s eight-year-old and sentenced to six consecutive life terms in prison. However, neither Elizabeth Eisel nor Katherine Lowery have ever been found.
Quite a hard read for some so warning-
