    I used to live near that area and drove through Alma on my daily commute. You are about 30-40 minutes to Dallas, just over 3 hours from Houston and Hwy 287 comes in right there making Fort Worth an easy shot too. I thought there was someone missing from Corsicana TX. That would only be 15-20 minute drive. Off to look.

    Apple maps looks like Section House Road is accessible easily from north bound I-45 and continue I-45 north. A bit more difficult to get to from south bound. If you know the area it's doable.

    Edited to add: it appears to be right at the 287 intersection. It's accessible from the I-45 northbound frontage which is a one way. If you come back out to I-45 you would have to continue northbound on the frontage get back on to I-45 and then you could double back from another exit. Of course there are always the backroads but having driven some, they can be pretty rough in a car.

    I hate to say the obvious, but because of the age of the UID and the t-shirt it seems highly likely she attended Pilot Point High School.
    Interestingly according to the most recent census, the town only has a population of 3,800 of which only 146 were African-American. You'd think if she went to or has some connection to the high school or even just the town, it shouldn't be too difficult to find someone who recognizes her.

    It's unlikely to be Typhenie Johnson. She was abducted from her brother's apartment by her ex-boyfriend. The boyfriend (Chris Revel) was found and arrested within an hour of his violently forcing her into his car (maybe less than an hour, I can't remember the exact timeline). He was found at his parents house with some of Typhenie's clothing found scattered in his parent's back yard. These remains are over 60 miles away from the apartment she was taken from. This could only be Typhenie if Revel handed her off to an accomplice. JMO.

    Lekeyia King is one I looked at too. She is slightly shorter than the estimated height of the UID. Lekeyia was 64-65 inches and the UI is estimated to be between 66 and 72. But other than that, she is from the right location to possibly be the UID.

    I live less than 5 minutes from the spot the remains were found and my friend is the hunter who found her.

    She was wearing that shirt and a red tank was with her as well. She was apparently wearing the red tank under the shirt.

    If that's the case then she isn't in Namus yet. TX is brutal at this time of year and the turkey vultures would be quick.

    Hopefully this will be resolved quickly.

    Edited to add:
    I'm thinking of that recent list of the 117 kids in TX that are missing. Someone ran away, staying with friends in the area and borrowed some clothes or bought some at goodwill.

    I agree, it is possible she went to school there. At the same time, how old is the design on the T-shirt and the sponsors? Some organizations donate boxes of excess "spirit" shirts to thrift stores to make room for next year's batch. If so, the victim might have obtained it from such a store.
    The Lancaster area (north of where the remains were found) was historically settled by blacks and could be predominately black today as well. I would start at both Pilot Point and Lancaster.

    Respectfully, I think you got some bad info from somewhere.

    Good point with Lancaster (I'm not familiar with the area). Speaking of Lancaster, as Gardener1850 alluded to, Lekeyia King went missing from Lancaster.

    She could have been dismembered and scattered. Not sure on wild animals ability to scatter a body. I know there are lots of coyote, wild pigs, turkey vultures and some bobcats in the area. Hogs and bobcats seem like they would be strong enough.

    Edited to add: skeletal remains would imply bone only? Maybe some parts were bone only, journalistic embellishment.

    Edited again: unless skeletal remains is verified with a larger news source I wouldn't count on the Corsicana Daily Suns choice of words. I'm not saying anything bad about them but, I would verify. I worked in that town for 8 years. Nice people, newspaper really small town.
