On December 30, 2018 the partially buried skeletal human remains, including skull with teeth, were discovered in a field in the middle of nowhere near Ville Platte, Louisiana. The remains were located in a green area near an isolated, rarely used barn in the middle of the field. Forensic investigators determined the remains to be that of a mixed Cajun French and African American female, 25-35 years of age. She had been partially buried for up to 10 years. During the search for her identity, area farmers who owned the land told investigators a guy who owned a farm nearby may have been involved with high risk females.
