    Sheriff Chody confirms dig related to Rachel Cooke, moving to new lead

    From the article linked above, the dig was in progress. I don't see anywhere that it's said " Nothing was found, so we're moving on to new leads".

    Isn't it possible that something WAS found, thus a new lead is being followed? I'm not necessarily referring to her remains but perhaps objects related to a crime against her.
    If I missed a news article that said " We found nothing, so we're looking at a new lead", I'd like to read it.

    After this length of time, " new leads" don't happen very often and this case has had almost NONE. Ever.
    The car in Dallas was the last lead we knew about and apparently it's locked down or was non-productive in the end. Possibly DNA and other forensic testing is not complete.

    Prayers for justice for Rachel. Her mother needs to know what happened to her. We all do, to a lesser extent than her parents, then her mom alone, do.

    From the above link:
    [​IMG]
    Map of the area near the Williamson County Sheriff's Office dig Dec. 18, 2018 (KXAN Map)

    “The excavation happened just south of Farm to Market Road 971, along the eastern edge or State Highway 130.”

    “Sheriff Chody said the dig was initiated after his office received a tip...”


    “At age 19, Cooke disappeared early in the morning on Jan. 10, 2002, when she went out for her daily four-mile run. Cooke did not return and was last seen around 200-yards away from her home, walking towards the residence.“

    This sounds very similar to Mollie Tibbet’s case.

    Also from the above link:

    “Sheriff Robert Chody said in April 2017 he was creating a cold case team to work on Cooke's case to help create new leads.“

    Any updates on this? Rachel used to babysit my husband before her disappearance. They’re are a couple of theories but I can’t find much truth to any of them online. Do we know who owned the white Trans Am they searched? This just breaks my heart someone must know something. This is gone on too long.

    When they found the car, I was hoping - even though a lot of years have passed - that LE found SOMETHING to link the car to Rachel. I'm still hoping there is forensic work being done.

    Me too. It’s so sad when cases have gone on this long with no answers.
