Girl Reported Missing Since 2009, Found Dead Nine Years After


Nine years ago, a ten year old Lindsey Baum was reported missing while she was walking home from a friend's house, and now she has been found, but dead.

Speaking at a news conference on Thursday, Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott described the recovery of Lindsey Baum’s remains as a “devastating” development for her family — but one that nonetheless now lets investigators narrow in on the suspect or suspects responsible for her abduction and slaying.
“The prayers and hopes of the family were that we would some day find her alive and bring her home. Now, the reality is we need to find a homicide suspect,” Scott told reporters.
“We’ve brought Lindsey home. We’ve recovered her,” he said, to audible reaction from those in the room.
Lindsey was last seen alive on June 26, 2009. She and her mom and older brother had moved to rural McCleary, Washington, two years earlier.
The night she disappeared, Lindsey went to a friend’s house for a possible sleepover — then headed back home alone after the other girl’s mom said no.
She wasn’t seen again.
The case quickly inspired massive attention, including a 2009 cover story in PEOPLE, as well as significant search efforts. But all to no avail.
In the nearly nine years since Lindsey went missing, more than two dozen possible people of interest have been connected to her case, according to the Seattle Times.
Sheriff Scott on Thursday said one imminent step would be a forensic examination of the area where Lindsey was found dead. He did not specifically discuss any suspects.
He said Lindsey’s remains were “unknowingly” found in September by hunters in Eastern Washington, after which they were sent to an FBI crime lab for DNA analysis, which confirmed Lindsey’s identity in recent weeks.
