Remains Found In Texas Desert Tentatively Identified

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (August 6, 2014) Arizona authorities believe remains found in West Texas are those of a missing woman who was last seen five years ago in Camp Verde.

The body, which was found last week in a desert area outside of El Paso, is believed to be that of Kristal Forest, 65.

DNA results were pending Wednesday.

Robert Reed, 60, was indicted in 2013 in her death.

Last month he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

He told investigators where to find the body.

Forest disappeared in March 2009 while moving from Cottonwood, Ariz. to Austin.

Authorities say Reed was helping Forest with the move.

Her trailer was found in April 2009 at a storage yard in Las Cruces, N.M.
