Police in Washington State found the remains last week of Lindsey Baum, a girl who vanished in 2009, never to be seen alive again.
“We’ve brought Lindsey home. We’ve recovered her,” Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott said at a press conference Thursday. “Sadly, she was not recovered as we and her family had hoped and prayed these last nine years.”
Baum disappeared when she was 10, and would have turned 20 last July.
She was last seen walking to a friend’s house in McCleary on June 26, 2009, to ask if she could spent the night. Her disappearance received national attention, with her photograph appearing on the cover of People magazine.

Lindsey Baum’s remains were found by hunters in a remote area of eastern Washington in September 2017, in a place

Natalee Holloway’s parents have relentlessly searched for answers ever since she went missing during a class trip to Aruba following her graduation from an Alabama high school in 2005. After 12 years, some closure may be imminent. According to Natalee’s father, Dave Holloway, and the family’s private investigator, T.J. Ward, bone fragments that were discovered in Aruba, as chronicled on Oxygen’s “The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway,” were sent to veteran forensic scientist Dr. Jason Kolowski, a former Forensic Laboratory Director of the D.C. Department of Forensic Sciences who founded Forensic Insight Consulting, LLC, to coordinate DNA testing and help them understand the results.
At least one of the bone fragments discovered is “from a single individual,” Kolowski, who is pictured below, tells Oxygen.com. “They are human, and they are of Caucasian, European descent.” Natalee, who was declared legally dead in 2012, was also Caucasian and of European descent.
Lawyers are currently building up a $100 million case against the late pop star Michael Jackson’s former companies and are searching worldwide for more information about his alleged crimes. According to the New York Daily News, these attorneys are seeking out Jordan Chandler, one of the first to accuse Jackson of wrongdoing. Chandler had received a $20 million payoff after his father sued Jackson for molesting him as a child. Lawyers believe Chandler has left the United States to avoid more questioning on the matter.
Legal teams for Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck, who were companions of Jackson as children, are hoping to convince Chandler to open up. Robson and Safechuck say they were abused as children as well.
