Investigating 2013 missing case, police find bone in backyard of Lubbock home

2013 Missing Case Police find bone

November 17, 2018 – The police have charged Carlos Andrew Rodriguez, 25, for the murder of Zoe Campos.  Rodriguez is already in jail for stalking someone last year.  He had received a four year sentence.

On Friday, police took an individual that is assumed to be Rodriguez to the home on 70th Street. Police dug in a specific area after the person told them where to dig, according to KFYO News.  Human remains were found.

November 13, 2018 – The police have announced that where they were digging at a home on 70th street was in connection with the Zoe Campos case.  After Zoe went missing, her phone pinged around Lowery Field, which is the where the authorities were digging when they found the bone.

Police said:

On Wednesday, November 7th, new investigative leads on the 2013 disappearance of Zoe Campos led investigators to a home in the 1900 block of 70th Street. Based on that lead, additional resources such as cadaver dogs were brought in from an outside agency to assist with searching the back yard. A bone was located by Lubbock Police Department investigators and the area was secured. Multiple units including LPD crime scene investigators, LPD forensic specialists and investigators with the Lubbock County Medical Examiner’s Office have assisted with the investigation.

At this time, the findings and that specific area remain an active part of the investigation.  LPD will continue to search the area for possible evidence.

Original story

Authorities have found a bone in the back yard of a home on 1924 70th Street, Lubbock, Texas.

The anonymous homeowner or renter, as this home has been a rental for years, told Everything Lubbock news that the police arrived at the door, Friday regarding a missing person case from 2013, and asked if they could search.  The homeowner agreed and during the search in the back yard they dug a hole waist-deep before finding a bone.  There is no confirmation at this time if it belongs to a human or not.

Missing Cases

Going back through my cases, I have found Zoe Campus, 18, who went missing Nov. 17, 2013 from  Lubbock.

Maegan Hembree who went missing on February 26, 2013.  Maegan Hembree left her home in Smyer to drive to a friend’s house in Lubbock, but never made it.

Just last September, Michael Todd Ramsey who is a person of interest in the Hembree case, was convicted and given a 80-year-sentence (read more here).  It my be possible the search at the house on 70th Street may have something to do with that case, because of the recent conviction of Ramsey.

Since you’re here

I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with less boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share.  I found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our

future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
