CO - Leann Emry, 24, Centennial, 16 Jan 2003
15 March 09
The father of a missing woman is opening up about the discovery of remains, believed to be his daughter's, and the man who may have killed her.
A suspected serial killer led law enforcement to the remains in the Book Cliffs area of Grand County. That man, Scott Kimball, is linked to a trail of missing people.
"She had a very loving heart," Howard Emry said. He says that was his daughter's best quality, and her biggest weakness.
In 2002, Leann Emry left an abusive marriage and moved in with her parents in Colorado. Her father says she soon struck up a friendship with a prison inmate. Through him, she met Scott Kimball.
"He likes to prey, evidently, on young girls, people who are in an emotional state that is low, which my daughter was," Howard said.
In January 2003, Leann left for a trip to explore caves in Mexico.
Authorities found her car abandoned in Grand County.

The identification of human remains found last week in eastern Utah with the help of an FBI "cooperating witness" in Colorado could take up to two weeks, the Grand County, Utah, sheriff said Tuesday.
Sheriff Jim Nyland said the remains were found March 11 in a remote canyon about 5 miles west of the Colorado border, north of Interstate 70. Nyland said a search of the area was conducted at the request of the FBI in Denver, the Boulder County, Colo., District Attorney's Office, and other Colorado law enforcement agencies.
Nyland said Scott Kimball, a 42-year-old Colorado man serving a 48-year sentence for theft in Boulder County, claimed there were two bodies in the area.

From March 2011:
Serial killer Scott Lee Kimball has written his family a 147-page letter admitting responsibility for the deaths of four people, according to the Boulder Daily Camera.
In a plea bargain, Kimball pleaded guilty in 2009 to two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Jennifer Marcum, Kaysi McLeod, LeAnn Emry and his uncle, Terry Kimball. The slayings happened in 2003 and 2004, after Scott Kimball was released from prison to become a paid FBI informant...
Kimball also admitted killing... LeAnn Emry, who he shot twice in the back of the neck when she tried to escape him in Utah, according to the letter.
