UPDATE: Missing Teens Skeletal Remains Found

New information on the Krishonda Townsend case. Police say they are investigating the case as a homicide.

Skeletal remains found in Palo Pinto County on Thursday have been confirmed as that of missing teen Krishonda Townsend. Palo Pinto County Sheriff Ira Mercer confirms with Newschannel 6 the remains were found in a remote location.

Mercer says a prospective buyer was walking through a wooded area to look at a property when he stumbled across bones Thursday. They were then sent to the University of North Texas in Denton. Saturday morning dental records confirmed the bones were that of 19-year-old Krishonda Townsend. Townsend went missing July 5th of 2010 after celebrating the Fourth of July holiday with friends. She never made it home that night and the next morning her car was found in downtown Mineral Wells. Officials have interviewed more than 100 people and have found no suspects, but Sheriff Mercer is very optimistic about getting to the bottom of the case. He believes they are on their way to finding a suspect in her death. Mercer says that doctors at the University of North Texas are looking at the remains to find a cause. Krishonda Townsend also had a son who is now under the watch of her Townsend's mother. Stay with Newschannel 6 as we follow this investigation.
