Mother Buried 15 Years Ago Found Alive in Florida
The Stir ^ | 1 july 2011 | Lindsay Mannering

Posted on 07/07/2011 12:32:37 PM PDT by PilotDave

When Grace Kivisto buried her mother 15 years ago, I doubt she ever dreamt this day would come. You see, Grace's mom, Lula Cora, left the then 15-year-old Grace in 1970 after a family fight and never returned home to her 14 children. In 1996, investigators found human remains buried in family's backyard, and assumed it was the missing mother. DNA evidence wasn't that sophisticated back then, so no testing was done.

I think you see where this is going. Two years ago, Grace offered up her mother's bones from the backyard to investigators to test the DNA, since the technology is decidedly much better now than it was in 1996.

Yesterday, Grace got a call that the bones were not her mother's, and that her mom is alive and well, and living in Florida. Yup.

How about: no one got arrested/investigated for murder?

What is it with the state of Florida? Too much humidity I reckon.

I'm happy they bothered to mention the status of bones originally offered up.

Like the skull found in the Beeb's David Attenborough's garden last year.

Missing from a 130+ year old murder victim.

“Missing from a 130+ year old murder victim”

Who would murder a 130+ year old? To live so long and have it cut short. So sad.

Why leave a kilt Mom buried in the BY all these years?

I read about Florida as being the most weird closely followed by California. But California’s weird stuff is mostly political/gay/animal rights/unameit stuff. Nothing about Pennsylvania except for the Amish .....

Between fighting with 14 kids and having a skeleton in the back yard, I’d think the mother had motive to disappear.

After 14 kids, it finally dawned on her that she wasn’t cut out to raise a family, I guess.

So the mother left and never came back after a family fight? The kids would have been better of if this scum was dead. Now they have to deal with the fact that they had a deadbeat mother.

the really important question is whose skeleton is that which was buried in the back yard??

Since humans don’t normally (or legally) get buried in yards one must assume that there is a murder victim unaccounted for, a savage crime as yet unsolved.

It's nothing new. Dave Barry wrote about it twenty years ago. The DeSillers Effect.
