Rebecca Sue Myers

DNA results have identified a human skull found in the area of Fannett and South 23rd Street in September 2016 as that of Rebecca Sue Myers. A cause and manner of death have not been determined.

Myers was not reported missing, and Beaumont PD detectives have so far been unable to locate a next of kin. Detectives are working to put together a timeline of Myers’ last known whereabouts, including who she may have been with. Records indicate that Myers was last seen leaving the Jefferson County Jail on Aug. 31, 2009. She was 42 years old at that time.

The double murder of 83-year-old Richard Ames and 85-year-old Edna Phillips, who were violently stabbed to death at Ames' Vidor home in 2015, shocked and appalled the small community with the police chief at the time, Dave Shows, describing the killings as "the most senseless, brutal murders" he'd ever seen as a longtime law enforcer.
