Parents learn coroner accidentally buried their missing daughter six years ago

DETROIT (AP) — Detroit police recently told the parents of a woman reported missing in 2009 that investigators actually found her body in 2010 and later buried her unidentified remains, blaming the mistake in part on investigative records that wrongly listed her ethnicity.

The parents of 28-year-old Crissita Cage-Toaster said they gave police a detailed description of their daughter — including of a large rose tattoo on her shoulder that included her parents’ nicknames — when they reported her missing in October 2009. Detroit police had discovered the woman’s abandoned car, with her purse, ID and cellphone inside, on a large island park east of downtown.

“From that day on, I’ve been searching for her,” said her mother, Rosita Cage-Toaster. “If they would have listened to me back in 2009, they could have then discovered my daughter.”

Local officials notified her parents this week of plans to exhume the body, which was buried

Interns have a lot to learn

Here in the newsroom, we are blessed to have a Troy High School senior serve as an intern twice a week.

We learn just as much from them as they are supposedly learning from us.

Last fall, we welcomed Intern Annie with open arms.

We also greeted her each day with, “Annie! Annie, are you OK? Are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?” that she finally knew we accepted her as one of us in our own quirky ways.

It also helped to know that she totally got the 1987 Michael Jackson hit song reference right away. I knew I could trust this kid.

I enjoyed showing Miss Annie how the local court system works and how we build relationships within the town they call home.

Annie especially enjoyed the day she accompanied me to a sentencing in the Miami County Common Pleas Court. She got to see how the court system works and how sometimes
