More News Of Marty

Patty (Marty's mother) has had a private detective working on finding Marty for several months now. Last week, the detective arranged for a major TV station in Houston to come out and do an interview with Patty and Ruth (Marty's sister). After the story aired, the station received information from 8 families who have missing family members in the area where Marty was last known to be. These families were not being kept abreast of what, if anything, was going on in the missing persons investigations. Evidently the TV station put some pressure on the homicide unit.

Patty was not told where Marty's skull was found. That was something she really wanted to know. The homicide detective in charge told a retired detective where it was found. The retired detective let Patty know. She sent the private detective to the area. There was a residential area nearby a 40 acre field and a cemetery further back. The private detective and his son began searching the field and found parts of a skeleton.

It was Marty. Coroner told Patty that they recovered everything except both arms. His clothing was there, wallet, and his ID. This coming week they will begin searching with dogs to recover any more missing parts.

For those of you who are familiar with Houston area, the discovery was made in Barrett's Station/Crosby area off Lullaby Lane.

Patty now hopes that the remains will be released to her soon so that she can have a memorial service and have the remains cremated to be buried with her body at her death.

This family and others with missing members still definitely need prayers.

What a sad story this is Jo. I pray that Marty's Mom and family will finally be able to end this awful chapter of their lives and give Marty the only peace, it seems, that he has ever had.

So, so sad, but at least now they KNOW, and can have closure.

RIP, Marty.
