    Bones of Teenage Female Found

    Officials Suspect She Was Murdered
    NEW LIBERTY—Many philosophers have pondered the question of whether a falling tree makes a sound if there is no one in the woods to hear it.

    The same principles can be applied to murder.

    For several years a body had been lying in the peaceful woods of eastern McCreary County without the knowledge of local law enforcement, who had no idea they had a homicide investigation on their hands.

    Until Saturday morning.

    According to Sheriff Skinner, the body apparently decomposed on top of the ground. Though investigators had to clear away “several years worth of leaf litter,” they never had to dig below the soil.

    Though he could not discuss specifics, the sheriff noted that the condition of the forensic evidence collected indicate foul play and the case is being investigated as a homicide.

    Dr. Emily Craig, a renowned forensic anthropologist with the Kentucky Medical Examiner’s Office, has been able to determine from a preliminary examination the remains belonged to a teenage female. The skull contained several teeth, which will be compared to other missing persons.
    Word of the discovery has sparked public interest in two local missing person cases. Sheriff Skinner told The Record that the remains did not belong to 30-year-old Charity Genoe, who was last seen in January. The findings appear to be more consistent with the case of Crystal Marler, who was just 15 when she disappeared in October 1998.
    “We’re not ruling out the possibility that this is Crystal,” Sheriff Skinner said. “But before we make that statement, we would need to hear the determination from Dr. Craig and the State Examiner’s Office.

    From October 2013:

    Crystal Marler's remains were found more than a decade after she disappeared, but the family still doesn't know what took place...

    Police say they've had persons of interest, but never enough evidence to cross all the t's and dot the i's to identify a killer...

    Police say they have reviewed notes she kept in her journal but her family doesn't believe that her death was the result of a bad relationship. Family says the notes in the journal were about long time friends.
