Police: Man arrested after human remains found during search for missing Kentucky mother

Police: Man arrested after human remains found during search for missing Kentucky mother Kentucky State Police say a man has been arrested after human remains were found during a search for a Kentucky mother of four who disappeared in January. Trooper Robert Purdy tells news outlets that the remains were found late Wednesday in a residential neighborhood in Garrard County. Twenty-three-year-old Savannah Spurlock was last seen leaving a Lexington bar with several men. Police say a tip reported Wednesday afternoon led authorities to search the property, which belongs to relatives of a potential suspect. News outlets say the property was initially searched during the early stages of the investigation.

Former Seguin dispatcher Delissa Navonne Crayton, 47, has been arrested for injury to a child under the age of 15 on Wednesday in Seguin.

A woman lived in a Seguin home with the skeletal remains of her mother in plain sight for three years, police said during a news conference Thursday. The woman's teenage daughter also lived in the home.

Police identified the deceased woman as 71-year-old Jacqueline Crayton and arrested her daughter Delissa Navonne Crayton, 47, Wednesday afternoon in connection with the investigation.

Seguin police discovered the skeletal remains Sunday night after receiving a tip during a Child Protective Services Investigation.

Police investigate ninth body found in the San Antonio area in July

Police investigate ninth body found in the San Antonio area in July The number of bodies found this month in the San Antonio area rose to nine early Tuesday with the discovery of man lying face down on a street in the downtown area. Police said a cab driver traveling westbound on West Commerce Street about 4:20 a.m. when he noticed the body in the street just west of Pecos La Trinidad. Police said the man’s body appeared to have a stab wound and a small laceration to the forehead. They are investigating the death. The man, who hasn’t been identified, is the ninth person to have been found dead in separate incidents throughout the San Antonio area in July alone.

Investigators said they believe Jacqueline died in 2016 after suffering a non-life threating fall in a bedroom at the residence she shared with Delissa and her granddaughter.

Delissa failed to call the police to assist her mother, leaving investigators to believe Jacqueline died a few days after the fall while lying on the floor, Seguin Police Cheif Terry Nichols said during the news conference.

Delissa, who is a former Seguin school district employee, is charged with injury to a child under the age of 15 for allowing her daughter to live in a house while her mother was decaying in the next bedroom, Nichols said.
