    That's awful. It would help to have more info to go on as far as identifying the remains. Such as, who rented the unit, etc.

    maybe someone can start searching the ncmec for siblings missing from CA in that age range, of course my gut tells me they probably weren't reported missing :(

    If the children have been dead for 2-4 years, possibly longer, then they went missing sometime around/between 2003-2006 I would think.

    I agree - I hope they are checking rental records! That would provide major clues!

    To clarify Stella's post, authorities were able to positively determine their identities. They were a brother and sister who were children of an apparently abusive mother who died of a drug overdose this past January.

    A very sad story all around.

    Mom had lost custody of her older children to CPS. It's speculated that she hid the children's existence from the authorities. Unfortunately, with the mom dead it will be difficult to piece together what really happened.

    With every story it gets worse and worse. I am glad that evil witch is dead. I hope the other children can live a happy and healthy life with her gone. God bless the ones that did not make it. I am confused about something though. One article stated that the children had been dead for up to 4 years. If that were the case, wouldn't the hand have been skeletonized instead of decomposing?

    Once again folks, we have a winner! Parents of the year award. Excuse my sarcasm, it states the mother died earlier this year of a drug overdose. I trust she's not liking the heat where she is! :furious:

    BAKERSFIELD, Calif.—Authorities are trying to determine the cause of death for two young siblings whose skeletal remains were discovered inside a Kern County storage unit.
    Investigators said Tuesday that dental records identified the victims as Victor Reyes and Tricia Reyes. The brother and sister had been dead between two and four years when the discovery of a severed hand August 19 led detectives to search a Derrell's Mini Storage unit in Bakersfield.

    oops, now i see a thread in the 'located' area. mods, can you move this? sorry about that.

    I believe the OP is using that term figuratively, not literally.
