League City Police department has just identified two women who went missing nearly 30 years ago in the infamous “Killing Fields” located off of 1-45. The cold case mystery is over three decades old and now League City detectives are one step closer to solving the case.
In a press conference this morning more information was released about the case.
This was made possible through technology were a company used DNA samples from the victims to trace their family tree. This breakthrough has helped the case immensely, back when the murders were first discovered such recourses did not exist which made it very difficult to find the identity of the victims or any leads on a suspect.
This led them to identify two of the 30 victims. One was known as “Jane Doe” has just been discovered to be Audrey Lee Cook. Her body was found in 1986 in the killing fields.
Her last contact with her family happened in 1985.
The second victim was identified to be Donna Prudhomme who moved from Beaumont to Austin in 1986. She then moved into Seabrook area where she went missing, remains of her body were found in 1981.
Both bodies were found in an area off Calder Rd in League City in what is called to be the “Texas Killing Fields.” Many bodies of young women from ages 12-15 have been discovered over the years.
The families of both individuals went through a mix of emotions now that they have some closure as to what happened to their loved ones.
League City Police are now calling on anyone who may have information about the case.
