Remains Found In Car Are Missing Girls

Remains Found In Car Are Missing Girls

After more than 40 years, the families of two missing teenage girls now know what happened to them.

Sherri Miller and Pam Jackson, of Vermillion, were last seen in a Studebaker, heading to a party at a gravel pit in May 1971. 

Despite years of searching and investigations, it wasn't until September 2013 that the car was located in a creek just a half mile from the girls' destination.  Record flooding followed by a drought brought the vehicle into view.

Skeletal remains found in the car confirm it was Miller and Jackson.

Mechanical tests on the car show it was in third gear, which is the highest.  South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley said this fall that evidence points away from foul play.  On Tuesday, Jackely said the deaths are "consistent with a car accident."

KELOLAND's Brady Mallory is there for the announcement and will have more on KELOLAND News First@4, 5, 6 and 10.
