Remember the woman who went missing after leaving a bar with two colorful gentlemen?
You’ll never guess how she ended up…
Investigators searching for a missing Alabama woman who texted she could be in trouble after leaving a bar with two strange men last month said Friday that they had unearthed a female body in a shallow grave, according to a report.
The grave was discovered in the backyard of an apparently vacant home in Hueytown by investigators looking for 29-year-old Paighton Houston, who was last seen in Birmingham on Dec. 20.
Officials said the intact body was wrapped in some sort of fabric, the Birmingham News reported, adding that investigators first descended on the home Thursday.
Jefferson County sheriff’s Chief Deputy David Agee told the paper the body’s discovery was being handled as a death investigation.
“Right now we have a lot more questions than answers but we hope to have those answers real soon,” Agee said. “We’re going to work hard and we’re going to find out what happened.”
On Thursday Houston’s mother, Charlaine, linked to a story about the Hueytown search on her Facebook page.
“Bring Paighton home,” she wrote on Friday before the discovery of the body was reported.
Since the confirmation of her death, the news sites have changed the description of the suspects from “black men” to “strange men” or just “men.”
But I’m sure they have their reasons.
