Roe v. Wade has been the law of the land for nearly 50 years. Will that matter?

  Roe v. Wade has been the law of the land for nearly 50 years. Will that matter? As much as some of the justices might wish they were writing on a blank slate, they cannot pretend they haven't dealt with Roe in numerous cases over the years. Equally important, several of the justices have at various times laid out the factors they weigh when voting to overturn precedent. How the court grapples with that question could illuminate the way forward for the court and its aggressive right flank as it grapples with other divisive topics in the future. Stare decisis In legalese, the doctrine the justices will consider on Wednesday is called stare decisis.

Clinkscales had been missing since January 27, 1976, when he disappeared after leaving a bar in western Georgia to drive back to Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama . His car was finally found on Tuesday by Chambers County deputies, who were notified of a submerged vehicle in a creek , the Troup County Sheriff's Office said. Deputies from Chambers County contacted the Troup County Sheriff's Office, just over the border in Georgia, after pulling the car from the water and identifying the Georgia license plates.

Kyle Wade Clinkscales was last seen the night of Jan. 27, 1976, the Troup County Sheriff's Office said. No one knew what happened to Clinkscales after the Auburn University student was last seen driving his 1974 Ford Pinto Runabout that winter evening. But on Tuesday, investigators from Chambers County, Alabama were tipped off about a car that was submerged in a creek off of County Road 83.

On Jan. 12, 1976, Clinkscales, who was 22 years old at the time of his disappearance, left LaGrange, Georgia, to drive 45 miles back to Auburn, but never arrived. News reports say that he worked as a bartender in LaGrange.

During a news conference, Woodruff said the Georgia Bureau of Investigation will look to see if the bones are Clinkscales' remains. He also said the bureau is searching for more bones.

"For 45 years, we've looked for this young man and looked for this car," he said. "We've drained lakes, and we've looked here and looked there and ran this theory down and that theory down and, it's always turned out nothing."

Woodruff said Clinkscales' father died in 2007 and his mother died this year. He was an only child.

"It was always her hope that he would come home," Woodruff said. "It was always our hope that we would find him for her before she passed away. Just the fact that we have hopefully found him and the car brings me a big sigh of relief."

'Roe' on the line as Supreme Court takes up abortion rights case

  'Roe' on the line as Supreme Court takes up abortion rights case The Supreme Court will hear a case from Mississippi that could transform abortion rights in America, overturning Roe v. Wade and allowing stringent new state laws. "This is the most important Supreme Court case on abortion since Roe in 1973, and I don't think it's particularly close," said Sherif Girgis, Notre Dame law professor and former clerk to Justice Samuel Alito.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is currently examining them.

Auburn student Kyle Clinkscales and his car disappeared while driving back to his college from LaGrange. Over 45 years later, investigators believe they've found his car and body. Autopsy report reveals new details in piedmont park murder. Clinkscales never got back to the college and he nor his white 1974 Pinto Runabout were ever found. On Tuesday morning, deputies with the Chambers County Sheriff's Office in Alabama were contacted by a 911 caller alerting them they discovered what appeared to be a car submerged in a creek off of County Road 38.

Authorities in Troup County have previously said Clinkscales was killed. In 2005, they arrested two people in connection with his disappearance after they said his parents received a call from a man who said he witnessed the disposal of their son's body as a 7-year-old, and it was covered with concrete in a barrel and dumped into a pond, according to news reports.

The two people were accused of making false statements. Pete Skandalakis, who was district attorney at the time, said he made the decision not to indict one of those people. The other pleaded guilty to two counts of making false statements and spent seven years and eight months behind bars.

The current district attorney serving Troup County, Herb Cranford, provided documents in the case. But he said in an email he had no comment, citing an open investigation.

Authorities never found Clinkscales' body. Woodruff said Wednesday that he was not involved in the two arrests and could not comment on them.

"As we stand here today, we may well be on the verge of an era when the Supreme Court sends Roe v. Wade to the ash heap of history where it belongs," Pence said at a National Press Club gathering hosted by anti-abortion group the Susan B. Anthony List.

Woodruff did not rule out foul play in Clinkscales' disappearance.

"I want to see what the GBI finds in the car, how many bones they find, do they find a skull," he said. "Was he murdered and left there? Did he run off the road and wreck there? That's something we hope to discover, but it's been 45 years."

The creek the vehicle was discovered in runs under a bridge. The rear door of the hatchback was open and visible, authorities said.

"We don't know if it rusted out and came open or if the water had just gone down," said Sheriff Sid Lockhart of Chambers County, Alabama.

The vehicle was not far from Interstate 85, which runs from LaGrange to Auburn.
