The remains of two children found in some woods in Sugar Creek appear to be those of Sam and Lindsey Porter, who disappeared more than three years ago.
Their mother has told the Kansas City Star that Independence police have told her about the remains. Independence police are officially saying only that they have found a grave with remains in it.
The children disappeared when their father picked them up at their mother’s house in June of 2004. He never brought them back. Father Dan Porter is serving 38 years in prisons for parental kidnapping. He has refused to say what happened to the children.
