Oh, Tamika :(

Convict leads police to woman's remains

SPARTANBURG, South Carolina (AP) -- A convicted bank robber led police to a set of skeletal remains believed to be those of Tamika Huston, a woman he once dated who had been missing for more than a year.Tamika Huston missing presumed dead

Authorities hope to have the remains identified in the coming week.

Christopher Lamont Hampton, 25, was charged with murder in Huston's June 2004 disappearance. He had been scheduled for release Friday from an Edgefield County prison after serving three months for violating probation stemming from a bank robbery conviction, but he was taken into custody instead.

New forensic evidence linked Hampton to Huston's disappearance, Spartanburg Public Safety Director Tony Fisher said. He would not release details, but he said the evidence was in addition to blood police found at Hampton's former apartment.

I am so sad. This is not the way a life should end. Even in death, you still are not forgotten.
