1971 Disappearance Case Reaches Closure

They had disappeared without a trace way back in 1971. And their families were worried sick about them. But today nearly four decades later, it seems the remains of the two pubescent girls, Cheryl Miller and Pamela Jackson, have been found. 

The skeletons of the two were found in a Studebaker which had sunk into a muddy creek in South Dakota. No outsider has been implicated in the tragic deaths. It seems it was an accident. The gear of the vehicle was at the third level. And the ladies who were both 17 years of age had been going at full speed to a social event. 

A fisherman found the dilapidated car in the creek and reported it to the authorities. After the remains of the two were analyzed it was ascertained that they belonged to none other than Cheryl Miller and Pamela Jackson. 

"No evidence indicates that there was foul play. This would appear to indicate an accident," South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley told CNN. The announcement "brings a closure" and gives the families "some answers," Jackley said. The families will now be able to collect the two girls' remains, he added.

The fact that no external hand was involved in the deaths of the two girls was a relief. The headlights of the vehicle had been on at the time of the crash. There was no liquor in the car and the only reason for the accident seemed to have been a burst tire. 

The place where the accident took place was later on subject to floods and also droughts. The families of the girls have said that they are glad that no foul play was involved in the sad demise of the two. 

They furthermore said that finally after so many years they had a permanent answer which was a relief. Their journey to get to the real cause of their deaths is over. Of course, the sense of loss remains since no force on earth can bring Cheryl Miller and Pamela Jackson back to life after that fateful night in 1971.
