Female body found in Belton not missing Kopetsky
October 6, 2007 7:34 PM ET
BELTON, Mo. (AP) - A female body found in Belton yesterday is not that of missing teen Kara Kopetsky.
Belton officials made that announcement today, but could not identify the body.
I'm so happy it;s not Kara Kopetsky!!!! But another family is soon to get bad news about thier loved one so sad
I wonder if this will be connected to Edwin Hall?? So glad its not Kara also but its still sad news to hear.Prayers to Kara and whoever this girl/woman is,Families.
This article was from the previous day. I'm just putting it here to show that this body could have been there for several months. We need to try to think of anyone else from around that area missing that hasn't been found.
Police: Remains Were Those Of Woman
Body Still Unidentified
POSTED: 4:17 pm CDT October 5, 2007
The person didn't have any identification, and the body was so decomposed that investigators couldn't initially tell whether it was that of a male or a female.
They also weren't immediately able to determine the person's age or race or what led to the person's death.
Investigators thought the body had been in the brush for as few as two weeks or as many as several months.
This is from the same article as above. But I notice that Belton, Mo is along the I35 route. I wonder how close where she was found it is to I35? Trucker route? She could be from anywhere.
Missouri Department of Transportation surveyors found the remains on Friday in 10-foot-high brush along an old, unused access road to Highway 71 near Missouri Highway Y.
BELTON, Mo. -- Remains found Friday in brush off an unused highway access road in Belton were not those of Kara Kopetsky, the Belton police chief said Saturday.
The 17-year-old Belton girl was last seen leaving Belton High School on May 4.

Girls missing within the last year or so from that vicinity other than Kara...
Yes, this is going to be bad news for someone. I only hope it provides closure for a family who already suspect their loved one is dead, not crush the hopes of people who have no clue. Maybe I'm stating this badly, but I think you know what I mean.
Indy, thanks for the links of the other missing in the area
What in the heck...there is virtually no information on these girls: Breanna Molina and Brittney Tigner...Rachel Holden...Marissa Lopez...nothing....where are these girl's families? There's not a detail to be found about them just vanishing. I don't understand.
Thats cause they think they ranaway! I don't know if they did or not. But even runaways can get hurt or killed and people just think they are runaways.

If they have to test DNA for an ID, it will take awhile.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police released the identity on Friday of a body found last week in Belton.
The body of Celia M. Gonzales, 26, was discovered in a wooded area on Oct. 5 near Highway 71 and 163rd Street by workers with the Missouri Department of Transportation.
Thanks BL. I know a lot of us were waiting on this info.
Thanks for the info, Busylady =)
After the body was identified as Gonzales, the case was turned over to Kansas City detectives because evidence indicated the homicide occurred there.(?????)
