    Case History
    On May 29, 1977 fishermen discovered the body of a little girl in Chambers Creek about 3 miles east of Corsicana. The body was originally thought to be that of Ladina McCoy, but her body was later located.

    The little girl is buried in a Navarro County cemetery. Her original headstone is inscribed with "Small Girl, Identity Uknown, May 1977." In 1980, an additional headstone was donated and inscribed "In Memory of a Little Girl Known to God, by a Friend Unknown to Her, 1980."

    As of 2013, her case is not active with either the medical examiner's office or the sheriff's department. The detectives who handled the original investigation are deceased, but the sheriff at the time indicated no leads were ever obtained. Their case file cannot be located at this time.
