Colorado amputee and mother disappeared in 2011 now skeleton with prosthetic discovered?

Bodies found in Newton Co. could be missing mom, son
Lettie Fisher and her son, John Fisher, have been missing from Tyler County since Sept. 19. Lettie and John Fisher’s 1999 silver Toyota 4-Runner was found at Magnolia Ridge Park on Sept. 22. The Tyler County Sheriff’s Office believes remains found Sunday belong to Lettia Fisher and her son, John Fisher Jr.

The mother and son went missing in September 2011.

“We are pretty confident that these are the missing individuals that we were looking for,” Sheriff Bryan Weatherford said. “We of course notified family, but pending examination we can’t be 100 percent sure.”

Lettie, 79, and her son John, 31, were last seen on Sept. 19, 2011 while preparing for a fishing trip, according to information from authorities at the time of the disappearance.

John Fisher Sr. reported his wife and son missing, saying that it wasn’t uncommon for them to go fishing or to a casino in Louisiana. The 1999 silver Toyota 4-Runner that Lettie and John had left in was at Magnolia Ridge Park three days after the Fishers were last seen.

Sunday a hunter found a skull, bones, prosthetic leg and fishing gear near Dam B, Weatherford said.

Weatherford said John Jr. had a prosthetic leg when he went missing in 2011, but the sheriff’s office will not positively ID the remains until DNA testing is done- which could take many months.

The remains are under investigation, but Weatherford said no foul play is suspected.

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
