      My reaction exactly. When I read the headline, it looked like there had been a fatal crash, but the victim of the crash was missing? Figure that out. Maybe less confusion if headline said, "Crash victim had been reported missing the prior night."

    Good detective work by the trooper. If this was my loved one, I would be thankful at least there is some closure that she was found.

    If police has not released her age, how do we know that she is 71?
