Volunteers Searching For McAlester Woman Find More Human Remains
Pretty sparse on details. Hopefully we will see more information about this.
These all have to be Holly - what are the chances it is someone else? Ugh. My heart hurts for her family.

Is there news regarding this case?
One of the last threads I follow that was started by Los...may it be resolved today or as soon as possible.
Here is a new(ish) article I haven't seen posted. Sadly, nothing new really.
Family Honors Missing McAlester Woman Two Years After Disappearance
I couldn't find anything new after a quick web search...
I hope the DNA results will be in soon.
Cody and his wife have been separated for a long time, but never made it official, according to family friends.
So a few things I've not seen covered here.
1. Cody and his wife supposedly have not lived together in years, per a member of his family.
2. Cody does not have kids, that I've seen mentioned. I don't think his "wife" cares what he does, so I'm not sure there's a motive there.
3. The woman who "committed suicide" while researching the case... her husband also "committed suicide" apparently in the exact same way.
4. The papers. Around this time, it rained in Oklahoma. A LOT. There is no way those papers were left there when she went missing and still able to be read, in no way messed up, by the time they were found.
5. The reason family seems to point to the husband is that they claim he has alienated her from them.
My opinion is that someone is leaving clues and planting things there.
Pittsburg County District Court criminal filings — Sept. 16-20, 2019
So this is strange. Perhaps the old warrant was renewed.
Holly Cantrell, 43, McAlester — Obtaining cash or merchandise by bogus check/false pretenses
This is from an incident that happened in December of 2014. I looked her up in the court dockets on oscn.net and was able to see a pdf. It looks like there are other cases against her as well. I don't have time right now to look at all of them.
It makes no sense for her to get a ride to the restaurant especially when she was dropped off. She had her own car. No sense whatsoever.
I would imagine since she told her husband she was working she had to leave her truck at work in case he drove by? So boyfriend had to pick her up.

Family Holds Balloon Release For McAlester Woman Missing For 3 Years
The family of a missing McAlester woman marks three years since her disappearance with a balloon release.
"It holds something in our heart. This is where she last was. This is the closest we can get to her right now," said Camp.
The family is still waiting for a lab in Texas to identify the remains, but they believe in their heart it’s Holly.
The Medical Examiner said the lab is one of the best in the world at extracting DNA from bones and the family is hopeful that answers will come.
"There might never be justice for her. We might never know. We just hold on to hope," said Camp.
Skeletal remains identified as Holly Cantrell
A quote from the article
“At this point we don’t have a lot of leads," Morris said. "We’re going to brief detectives tomorrow and work toward making an arrest to bring justice for the family."
Morris said the next-of-kin was notified of the identification and he hopes to bring closure with an quick arrest.
“We want to do everything we can to solve it and bring justice for them,” Morris said.
Morris said the sheriff's department will work jointly with the McAlester Police Department to conduct and revisit interviews.
