    This is going to sound awful, but I think it would be good if it was Tara Calico. It would, possibly, be of some comfort to know that her suffering ended the day she disappeared and she wasn't tied up and tormented in the back of some van.

    I am already certain that she wasn't the girl in the van. But I will be glad to no longer hear the speculation that she's the girl in the van. :)

    I don't know what van you guys are talking about but if the sheriff is saying that they don't know how old the remains are and what happened to the person I don't see how there's any way of knowing which day the decedent's suffering ended and whether he or she was tied up and tormented somewhere before their death.

    This quote is confusing. I can't tell if he's referring to the age of the deceased, or how many years the remains have been in the shallow grave.

    He's talking about how long they've been there.

    Bones Found Near Belen Not Missing Woman's

    DNA testing ruled Tara out as a match.

    The article has some more details about the remains. They consist of a skull and upper torso and they were found close to an old bunker. It says it's still possible these are old Native American remains, so they're going to do testing to see how old they are and put the DNA into a national database.
