20 years later, McCreary family still looking for answers
By Greg Bird, McCreary County Voice
Read the full story at themccrearyvoice.com
Twenty years ago a 15-year old McCreary County girl went missing, and her family has never been the same. Crystal Marler's life was cut short when she abruptly disappeared on Oct. 8, 1998.
She has been gone now, longer than she had been alive, but her family still holds hope that the person, or persons who took her from them will face justice, and perhaps bring a little piece of closure to the deeply troubling ordeal.
In 2009, more than a decade after Crystal's disappearance, hunters stumbled across skeletal remains off a Forest Service road near Peel Dogwood Road, bringing fresh life in to the investigation. The State Medical Examiner's Office positively identified the remains as Marler's and determined the cause of death was blunt-force trauma and a gunshot. Further evidence was collected at the scene, but little more learned about the case at the time.
