    TX - Rebecca Lemke Beard, 22, Freeport, 1 March 1986

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I am fairly new to the forum, could not find a thread on her:


    Rebecca Jean Lemke Beard
    Missing since March 1, 1986 from Freeport, Brazoria County, Texas.
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Vital Statistics
    Date Of Birth: February 15, 1964
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 22 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'5"; 120 lbs.
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Hazel eyes; blonde hair.

    AKA: Rebecca Lemke Beard, Becky Lemke

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Beard was last seen at the Excaliber Club in Freeport, Texas. She had a 2-year-old daughter and worked for a car dealership.
    Paul Gayland Taylor pleaded guilty to murdering Beard in February 1995. Prosecutors were able to get an indictment against Taylor after he bragged while in prison on unrelated conviction to having killed Beard at his Clute home. Taylor showed authorities where he thought he buried Beard in a shallow grave, in a rice field just south of Angleton. The search was suspended without finding Beard's remains. Taylor, 38, was sentenced to life in prison for the murder. He also was sentenced to 25 years for solicitation of capital murder for trying to hire someone to kill a witness who was to testify in the murder case.

    I was looking through some posts in the Pincess Blue forum and saw that Rebecca's daughter had posted there back in 2013! I wish we could help bring her mama home for a proper burial.
    Here is the link to that and her photo:
