    Where the clothes were located is were she was assulted and she's still in the area, the rivers current carried her for a distance before stopping at the rivers edge because of some stones/branches. She was wearing some jewelry so using a metal detector would be a good idea if doing a search. Have already sent a tip to the local police.

    Never heard of this case til just now...

    My initial thought is, if Shelly had a hearing impairment and was walking after dark on a busy highway, perhaps a car accidentally struck her? It doesn't indicate the severity of the hearing loss, nor if she wore a hearing aid or anything, but perhaps she couldn't hear a horn warning. A driver could have panicked and disposed of her body somewhere.

    Although the recently found remains aren't likely to be Shelly's, this article references the find as it may or may not relate to Shelly's case:

    http://eedition.edmonton.24hrs.ca/epaper/viewer.aspx

    Subsequent articles indicate the remains may be of an adult male with no foul play suspected:

    My heart aches for parents who never have their children returned to them ... to have the hopes that are built and dashed, over and over again through the years.

    I always wondered about her boyfriend that she just started seeing, was it verified that she left his house and if so was it verified that witnesses saw her getting abducted while walkning home on the highway. For what reason did she prefer to get home by herself then her mother picking her up. THAT was always suspicious.

    PS. she is not believed to be a victim of the highway of tears killings.
