The body of missing woman Deanna Lee Stires has been located, bringing an end to the search that has lasted nearly a month. The Florida woman vanished on New Year's Day, and the media hasn't covered her case much since then. It's a shame that her case didn't get the media attention it needed, because her remains might have been discovered sooner than they had been. Sources report that her body was decomposing. This indicates that she had been there for a while.
Hunters reportedly stumbled upon the 18-year-old girl's body, but these are about the only details available in this developing case. Her case of death isn't yet known, but is being investigated. So it's not yet known if she was murdered or suffered some kind of accident.
