I have no clue who some of you are looking for but try here. You can find anyone incarcerated in the State of Alabama.
Mickey2942, I agree that it seems as though it would be a pretty hard-core psychopath to bury a body; however, a little research has turned up some info. on the mindset of individuals who use drugs and, evidently, there are some hard-core psychiatric symptoms that arise with use of certain illegal drugs such as cocaine and crack cocaine as well as methamphetamine, to name just a few.
If someone (or more than one) had been smoking crack or taking meth, for instance, they could have become paranoid and jittery, then panicked, all leading to a terrible decision. A drug such as meth, when taken in excessive amounts, can and does make users paranoid.
Methamphetamine Psychosis: Epidemiology and Management
Psychotic symptoms and syndromes are frequently experienced among individuals who use methamphetamine, with recent estimates of up to approximately 40% of users affected. Though transient in a large proportion of users, acute symptoms can include agitation, violence, and delusions, and may require management in an inpatient psychiatric or other crisis intervention setting. In a subset of individuals, psychosis can recur and persist and may be difficult to distinguish from a primary psychotic disorder such as schizophrenia.
Cocaine and Psychiatric Symptoms Very interesting article here that explains the effects of cocaine on users. "Homicidal thinking" is one.
Background: Cocaine is an addictive drug that produces numerous psychiatric symptoms, syndromes, and disorders. The symptoms include agitation, paranoia, hallucinations, delusions, violence, as well as suicidal and homicidal thinking. They can be primary to the drug's effect or secondary to exacerbation of comorbid psychiatric disorders.More disturbing are the effects of crack cocaine:
Data Synthesis: The use of cocaine in the “crack” form is often associated with more frequent and intense symptoms. Paranoia occurs in 68% to 84% of patients using cocaine. Cocaine-related violent behaviors occur in as many as 55% of patients with cocaine-induced psychiatric symptoms. Homicide has also been associated with cocaine use in as many as 31% of homicide victims. In suicide, cocaine has been found to be present in as high as 18% to 22% of cases. Many patients with cocaine dependence have also been found to have a comorbid psychiatric disorder.
Almost all 911 responders carry NARCAN or similar; most users know this and some carry Naloxone. They are immune from criminal liability if they administer it for an overdosing individual (see reference #1 below).
In addition, it's not a crime to report an overdose and thus save someone who ODs, and most users know this too (including those who are under 21 using alcohol) - see reference #2 below.
IMO - just MO - it's less likely she simply OD'd, and no one did anything - no call to 911, doing absolutely nothing but bury her. That just does not make sense to me, opioid users/addicts or not.
It's possible someone may have 'staged' her OD, though. Unfortunately, it would probably be very difficult to tell the difference at this point - even with follicle tests.
#1 -Alabama Code §20-2-280 states that a physician or dentist who prescribes, a pharmacist who dispenses, and an individual who administers an opioid antagonist in good faith to an individual at risk of experiencing an opiate-related overdose or to a family member, friend, or other individual, including law enforcement, in a position to assist an individual at risk of experiencing an opiate-related overdose is immune from civil or criminal liability. https://www.alabamapublichealth.gov/pharmacy/assets/naloxonefaq.pdf
#2 - https://www.alabamapublichealth.gov/pharmacy/assets/hb208.PDF - to provide immunity from prosecution for possession or consumption of alcohol for an individual under the age of 21, or certain controlled substance offenses, by any individual who seeks medical assistance for another individual under certain circumstances;
I believe that PH was a smoker and had to go outside or to the outdoor patio of the TR bar to smoke. (Venmo paid for cigs).

Thank you! What the heck? You have to pay to search court dockets in Alabama? That's crazy!

The autopsy for Paighton Houston has been completed, but authorities said they don’t yet know how the Trussville woman died.
Jefferson County Chief Deputy Coroner Bill Yates on Monday said further examination and testing is needed to determine the cause and manner of death.
Houston’s body was found Friday in a shallow grave in the backyard of a home on Chapel Drive in Hueytown. The remains were wrapped in sheets and the body was intact, said Jefferson County Bessemer Cutoff District Attorney Lynneice Washington.
Jefferson County sheriff’s Deputy Chief David Agee said the sheriff’s office has taken over as the lead investigative agency on the discovery of the remains. He emphasized that this is a death investigation that has not yet been deemed a homicide.
Paighton Houston’s cause, manner of death still undetermined

Jefferson County authorities completed the autopsy on a Trussville woman after her body was found two weeks after she disappeared.
The Jefferson County Coroner’s office said more examination and testing is needed to determine the cause and manner of death for Paighton Houston.
Investigators found her body January 3rd. It was wrapped in a blanket in a grave behind a vacant house on Chapel Drive in Hueytown.
Houston, 29, was last seen Dec. 20 leaving a Birmingham bar. Family members said that she later sent a text to a friend saying she didn’t know who she was with and felt that she was in trouble.
Cause of death not determined after Paighton Houston's autopsy
I know how to inmate search but how do you do a docket search without paying for it? Here in Ohio you can access any county court system and look up cases.
Thanks for posting the date of the article! It is very helpful there are so many articles no matter what case it is. Much appreciated!
This looks like a victim link
The problem with hair samples is results won't narrow down to such a small or recent time frame.
Wow. That’s pretty impressive that they could determine that five weeks later!
Pretty sad. But thank you.
A little more. It’s still mysterious but I understand somewhat more.
You're right. It was designed to alert victims of their offender's release.
From the articles posted above, she was wrapped in a blanket and/or sheet.
1. Convenience for transporting
2. Sexual assault
3. Suggests it was someone close to PH
Any other thoughts?
Wow. I wish I had time to compare and see if there are missing young women similar to her.
Taking my meds and going to bed, will catch up tomorrow. So much info is found here! Thank you all!
Some of these articles say blanket some say a sheet and some say sheets lol which is it. Minute things such as these can be very telling.
It's really unusual for people getting high together to bury somebody who OD'd.
But it's very typical for somebody who kidnapped, raped, and killed someone to bury the body in a shallow grave somewhere.
Just the way my thoughts are trending...
