After 22 years, Mo. family finds slain sister
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The last time Stephanie Clack saw her big sister, they were sharing a pizza and talking about getting concert tickets. That was 22 years ago.
But the Kansas City, Mo.-area woman was recently watching the ABC television show “The Forgotten” and saw a public service announcement for the Web site NamUs, which helps locate missing people.
Stephanie entered some of the required data — the last time and place her sister was seen, her age and identifying characteristics.
The search led her to authorities in Ohio, where police said her sister’s body had been found near a highway in 1987, the victim of a strangling.
Now, cast and crew from the TV show want to help pay the costs of returning the woman’s remains to her sister in Missouri.
