    Van Zandt county Sheriff's Department have made an arrest in connection to a missing woman.

    Johnson W. Burris of Mabank has been charged with the murder of Diane Hopson.

    The Sheriff's office tells us evidence at Ms. Hopson's home and the the fact Hopson has been gone so long makes it unlikey she'll be found alive.

    The bond for Burris has been set at one million dollars.

    Police are still looking for Hopson.

    If you have any information your asked to contact the Van Zandt Sheriff's office.

    Sheriff’s deputies in Van Zandt County fear a missing woman may be the victim of foul play.

    Diane Hopson, 62, has been missing from her home near Mabank in Johnson County since Nov. 18.

    The woman’s daughter called police after going to her mother’s home and seeing evidence of a struggle. Blood was reportedly found at the scene.

    Investigators ruled out robbery because Hopkin’s cell phone, car, house keys and purse were all left at the house.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact the Van Zandt County Sheriff’s office.

    Not sure how this came out, couldn't find anything later that this article. It doesn't look like her body was found?

    Murder Suspect Freed On Bond
    Van Zandt Newspapers
    Murder suspect Johnson Walter Burris, 43, Mabank, who was recently indicted by a Van Zandt County Grand Jury for the murder of Diane Hopson, 62, Mabank, has been released from the Van Zandt County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
    Hopson has been missing from her residence on VZCR 2815 since November 18 and blood evidence connected Burris to Hopson in the disappearance. Hopson’s body has never been found.

    Large number of skeletal remains found in Henderson County

    A large number of skeletal remains have been found in Henderson County, according to authorities there.

    Henderson County Sheriff's Deputies were called out to the 10,000 block of CR 2448, Flagg Lake Road, just west of Tool last Thursday, after a woman discovered what she believed to be human remains on the side of the road.

    Deputies confirmed the woman indeed found a human skull.

    On Friday, authorities returned to the location to conduct a more extensive search of a wooded area near where the remains were located.

    Several of those skeletons have been tentatively identified as human.

    Justice of the Peace Dale Blaylock ordered the remains to be sent to the Southwest Institute of Forensic Science in Dallas, and then onto the University of North Texas Anthropology lab in Denton.

    Right now, authorities aren't sure how the bones got there, whether they were dumped or perhaps moved into the area by rain run-off.

    The Henderson County Sheriff's Office is investigating.
