It wasn’t Jennifer so it ain’t much of a news story
The word hit all the newscasts early in the week. The skull of a child with red hair was found near Madison, North Carolina. Immediately, speculation began that the remains were those of nine-year-old Jennifer Short, the Bassett, Virginia, girl who has been missing since someone shot and killed her parents on August 15. It took 12 hours for a forensics lab in Roanoke to examine the remains and declare the skeleton was not Jennifer Short.
