I wonder what the story there is?Remains found in 1982 but only just identified.
TWINSBURG, Ohio ― Skeletal remains found nearly 40 years ago have been identified as those of a guitarist who once played with the R&B group The O’Jays and also co-wrote a few of their songs, investigators said.
Authorities used DNA and genealogical research to identify the remains of Frank “Frankie” Little Jr., which were found in a garbage bag in a wooded area behind a business in Twinsburg in 1982, said Summit County Medical Examiner Lisa Kohler. His death has now been ruled a homicide, but who killed him remains unknown, she said.
Little, who was born in Cleveland in 1943, played with the the O’Jays in the mid-1960s. He was not a founding member of the group that began in Canton, Ohio, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.
He served in the U.S. Army for two years, including in the Vietnam War, but not much was known about his disappearance, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.
Walter Williams, one of the original members of the O’Jays, said Little wrote songs with Eddie Levert, another one of the band’s founders, according to Twinsburg detective Eric Hendershott, who helped revive the investigation into the remains.

A member of a search team who located a missing teen’s vehicle in the Snake River Sunday said he has never worked the case before and found the car in 20 minutes. ...
Doug Bishop is a lead diver and lead investigator with Adventures With Purpose, a company based in Oregon. Adventures With Purpose has been around for about five years and is an underwater sonar search and recovery dive team. ...
Bishop came to Idaho Falls on Sunday with his team to help in the Matthew “Jed” Hall case.
When Jed was 16, he left his parent’s home on Jan. 22, 2018. In the days, weeks and years that followed, Idaho Falls police detectives searched for Jed, who vanished in his 2009 gray Nissan Versa hatchback. He took a 9mm handgun and camping/survival-type gear with him. Jed reportedly left a note indicating he may attempt suicide. ...
“We came into this like we come into all cases. We determine if someone is missing and if someone is missing with a vehicle. We specialize in sonar the way that law enforcement doesn’t have the capability,” Bishop explained. “Do we have a cellphone ping, a last known location? Locations that are frequented, etc. That’s how we base the waterways that we need to search and that’s how we choose those waterways.”
In this case, the last known place where Jed’s cellphone pinged four years ago was near the Snake River. ...
Bishop said he and his team started the search on Sunday at 9 a.m. just south of the Johns Hole boat ramp. Within 20 minutes, Adventures With Purpose discovered a vehicle underwater about 75 yards down from the boat ramp in just 8 feet of water. ...
He said there is evidence that Jed’s vehicle has been in the water since he disappeared four years ago. ...
FULL STORY: https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/09/us/missing-daughter-found-alive/index.htmlThe missing daughter of a couple killed in 1981 has been found alive more than 40 years later
he missing infant daughter of a man and woman whose bodies were discovered in Texas in 1981 has been found "alive and well" more than four decades later, according to the office of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
The bodies of Florida couple Tina Gail Linn Clouse and Harold Dean Clouse Jr. were found in a wooded area in Houston, the office said in a news release. But the couple -- "the apparent victims of a homicide" -- were not positively identified until 2021 through the work of forensic genealogists with Identifinders International.
For the Linn and Clouse families -- who last heard from the couple in 1980 and spent decades searching for answers about the Clouses' whereabouts -- one question has been left unanswered: Where was their infant daughter Holly? According to authorities, the girl was not found with the couple's remains. ...
But after more than 40 years, Holly -- now 42 -- has been found, per the AG's office.
Holly has been told about her biological parents' identities and has been in contact with her extended family, the AG's office said. All hope to soon meet in person, it added.
The release from the AG's office did not detail Holly's life for the last 40 years, though family members quoted in the news release said she'd had a good life and was well cared for.
The investigation into her parents' deaths is ongoing ...
The child of two parents who were found murdered in Texas more than 40 years ago has been located alive and well, the state attorney general has said.
"Baby Holly" Crouse, now 42 years old, was not found with her parents at the 1981 murder scene. The couple was not identified until 2021 using DNA tests.
At a news conference, Texas officials said they "rejoice" that she is safe, but the two murder cases remain open.
Who were the "cult" people who sold the car/dropped the child off? Did they kill the parents?
The cult aspect of the story intrigues me.
