    Don't we usually see that bodies wrapped in some sort of cloth are generally done so by caregivers or women? I'm so curious to learn from phone pings where Paighton was that day (and where she was NOT).

    This one hits hard and seeing the positive identification post brings me to tears.

    Rest in peace, Paighton.

    Body found in shallow grave in Hueytown yard identified as Paighton Houston

    Jan 3, 2020

    Trussville police late Friday afternoon said the remains have positively been identified as Paighton Houston. The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office has not yet released the cause and manner of death.

    "Our thoughts and prayers are with the Houston family as they begin the grieving process,'' said Trussville Det. Ben Short, who has been assisting in the investigation.

    And there it is. Oh Paighton, I am SO so sorry. We rooted for you. You defeated a lot of demons, sweet girl. You deserved to be allowed to live your life.

    With Heidi Broussard the manner of death was released when she was identified, if I
    remember correctly. I suspect this one is going to take longer, waiting on the toxocology report. JMO

    Interesting and I'm sure you are right about variance. I have always wondered if it was thought I was spared not having to identify my son because I worked in LE field or what was done. I hope for the families sake this was a tragic accidental OD as opposed to worse.

    What a sad end to a beautiful girls life. My heart hurts for her family.

    I am eager to know what tip led them to the house. I am also eager to know what exactly the video surveillance showed, if anything. It is odd that LE did not release it. Therefore I believe since no black men were confirmed on those videos, they knew who she left with and had no reason to release it. IMO

    Certainly phone pings would have been available before now so it's more than that. More investigation into the POI that they are not naming?

    Do we know, when was the last time other people saw her? Was she at work that day?

    MOD for Heidi was announced very early on.
    MOD is crucial. IF there is any physical trauma they can determine more quickly.

    MOO

    It’s crushing to read this update. Though it was the outcome most of us expected, you still hold on to a small sliver of hope that it’s not her. Rest In Peace sweet lady. I pray that you receive the justice that you deserve.

    Doom and gloom to whoever did this to you, Paighton. RIP.

    And I tip my hat to all the great WS people I've had a chance to interact with.

    RIP lovely Paighton. Does anyone think it is odd that LE are currently classifying it as a death investigation instead lf homicide? Is this making people more suspect that it could have been an OD where person(s) with her may have panicked and reacted to cover it up? MOO.

    Well, that's that. I hope that Paighton's family is given answers. My heart is breaking for them right now.

    I don't quite get the thought process of burying a person that overdosed. Why? For what? It's not like the family suffered any less. They didn't know where Paighton was, if she was alive or not since December 20. They spent the holidays not knowing where their daughter was and why she wasn't coming home. How does that make it any better or easier? Unfortunately, drug overdoses happen every single day. What was the worse that could have happened to the people that were with her? I don't know, it doesn't make sense if it was just an accidental overdose.

    I found another case online, where a man OD'ed on heroin and his friend moved and hid the body and then threw away the deceased man's cell phone. He was arrested and charged with "tampering with evidence" as well as "abuse of a corpse".

    I wonder if that is the next step we will see in this case?

    And will we be able to look it here if the person is arrested in Jefferson County?
