Missing sisters found safe, but questions about case’s handling remain

As the welcome news came Thursday that three missing Austin-area sisters had been found safe in Florida, questions remained about how long it took school officials to learn one child was missing and why authorities didn’t send out a statewide Amber Alert.

Two of the sisters had been in foster care since Nov. 3, when authorities learned their mother had allowed their father, 46-year-old Anthony Joseph Jordan II, to live with the family, counter to directives by state case workers. Anthony Jordan had been accused of sexually assaulting the oldest girl, 16, court records show.

Two of the girls had been missing since Tuesday, when their mother, Sarah Marcella Jordan, 38, abducted the youngest girl, 10, and a middle child, 13, authorities said. She was arrested Thursday in Pensacola, Fla., and charged with interference with child custody, officials said. Authorities didn’t say whether anyone else had been charged in the case.

Why do so many Columbus homicides remain unsolved?

In photos, Sandi Roth’s smiling face is dotted with dimples.

Her father remembers the sound of his daughter’s laugh.

But Roth, 29, spent the last few months of her life in silence.

A tracheal tube helped her breathe as she lay in a coma after she was severely beaten in January on a Hilltop street. She was moved around from one facility to the next before dying in March.

Roth remains one of this year’s unsolved homicide cases, which outnumber the cases police have been able to close.

“I don’t think they’re ever going to find the person who did it,” said Bruce Dunkle, her father, who now lives in Rockwood, Tennessee.

The total number of slayings this year was 80 as of Monday morning. Police have made arrests in 22 cases and closed five more through what they call “exceptional clearance,” for example, if

Skeletal remains discovered in 1985 along lakeside cliff remain unidentified – Journal

The third unidentified person “cold case” in Pulaski County examined this year involves the skeletal remains of a black or mixed-race male found December 19, 1985 along the cliff line of Lake Cumberland across from Lee’s Ford Marina Resort.

Pulaski County Coroner Clyde Strunk pulled the cold case from his files in response to questions about skeletal remains of an unidentified male listed on the Unidentified Persons Database of NamUs (National Missing and Unidentified Persons System). The remains on the NamUs list are of a male, 35-45 years old, found, according to NamUs, January 1, 1986 in rural Pulaski County.

 It is not immediately known if the two reports could be the same case with an error in dates, or if it could be two different unidentified people. Also on the NamUs database are skeletal remains of a female found July 2, 1995 by two people looking for a campsite in the
