By Sky News US Team
A skeleton found walled-up in a basement full of junk has been identified as a first-grade teacher reported missing by her husband more than 27 years ago.
JoAnn Nichols disappeared in December 1985.
Her husband James Nichols died of natural causes last December, aged 82.
Authorities say a contractor cleaning hoarded items and debris out of the Nichols' home in upstate New York found the bones in a sealed container behind a false basement wall.
The Dutchess County medical examiner's office identified the remains as those of JoAnn Nichols, based on dental records.
Dr Kari Reiber said the 55-year-old woman died from a blow to the head.
Poughkeepsie Police said the investigation into her death continues.

WATCH THE FAMILY ! ! !

Yes indeedy, watch the family.

Do the police ever go into homes and tap on walls and doors as you see in the films? If not why not? Is it even possible that there is some equipment which might do the job?

Columbo and co. always seem to be able to do it.smilie

Unfortunately it happens way too often.  The case of Rachel McLean killed by her boyfriend (for instance) after he made a tearful plea on TV for her return.   He had hidden her body under the floorboards -

Riley Ann Sawyers (Baby Grace) beaten to death by her mother and stepfather.

I watched a documentary on this case recently. Riley Ann's body could not be identified after being washed up in a blue box. Riley Ann died on 24/7/2007 two months after Madeleine went missing.  During the investigation LEA in USA requested Madeleine's DNA.

This is one of the saddest cases I've ever seen. Riley's mother even anonymously attended the candlelight vigil at the waterside where her body was discovered in a blue box. The investigation is a tribute to the USA LEA's and the grandmother of Riley.

After everything, the mother pleaded not guilty. She was found guilty of capital murder.

Not any equipment, that I know of, but some very clever doggies.   winkwink

The Rachel McLean case was just one of many where appeals for help were made by someone who turned out to be responsible.

One of the cases mentioned here is that of Sion Jenkins who has since been cleared of the murder of his foster daughter; rightly so in my opinion though maybe others won't agree.

We recently had a foster placement of a teen girl that, when she wasn't getting her own way, ran away. Protocol was to advise the police because we had no power to force her to come back in or get in our car if we saw her on the street.

Each call to the police resulted in a house visit and each visit they gently requested that they search the house including the loft. This was on the pretext that previous runaway cases which had wasted police time involved kids who had just hidden in the house. Once we had family staying and it was impractical for them to search everywhere but the rest of the time we let them do what they needed to do. In fact when a boy this girl knew had ran away the police came to us to search the house just in case she'd harboured him!

Simple standard practice.
