About 10 years ago my second cousin, Bill V. Gross, and two other guys disappeared. They were on their way from their home in western KY to visit family in eastern KY, but never arrived.
The case went cold and it seemed as if it would never be solved. However, within the past few days the van they were in, along with the remains of all three, were found submerged in a lake/pond near Owensboro, KY. Investigators are still conducting their investigations to determine the causes of death and to gather additional forensic evidence. From the original investigation a decade ago there are definite reasons to suspect foul play.
I just ask that you pray for his parents and siblings, as well as all of his extended family. Pray that God's grace will comfort and strengthen everyone through this time. Also, assuming foul play is involved, pray for the police as they seek to find clues and make arrests.
Even though we suspected that he was dead we all maintained a small glimmer of hope (denial I guess), but now it is reality. Although it is good to have closure it is still very painful nonetheless.
