On Sept. 9, 2007 police in Independence, Missouri made a grim discovery. They uncovered skeletal remains they believed belonged to Sam and Lindsey Porter -- a brother and sister who had been missing since June of 2004.
And just two days later, dental records confirmed that the bones found in the shallow grave are those of the Porter children.
Since then, cops say the children's father -- Daniel Porter -- is the person who led them to the bodies. Porter faces murder and multiple kidnapping charges. However, in December of 2007, a state appeals court dropped two of the four kidnapping charges he's facing, but it certainly doesn't mean he's off the hook.
The children were last seen with their father and were reported missing on June 7, 2004. Independence, Missouri Police Captain Ken Jarnigan says it appears the children had been in the grave for quite some time, leading him to believe they had been placed there soon after they had gone missing.
