Missing Woman Believed Murdered Found Alive!
Boulder, CO--People love to assume murder in the case of a missing woman. That goes double if the perception of the missing woman’s significant other appears to be a womanizer or jerk.
I never understood why so many people anxiously wring their hands and become angry when a police investigation does not lead to an arrest when there’s no body or corpus delicti.
If no dead body can be located or if there is one but the cause of death cannot be determined you can’t assume there was a murder. You can’t then take the next giant step and accuse someone of the most serious crime we have on the books.
Bolder County Sheriff’s investigators assumed murder in a 1954 case. Amazingly enough, the woman, Katharine E. Farrand Dyer was located alive and positively identified today in Australia. She’s now 84 years old. Thankfully nobody was charged or convicted of killing this woman!
