1979 Disappearance Solved: Helen Holladay Remains Found in Truck in Lake

The skeletal remains found in a pickup truck retrieved from Texas' Lake Granbury have helped solve the 1979 disappearance of Helen Holladay.

Teeth from the skeleton match Holladay's dental records, forensic examiner at the University of North Texas Health Science Center told the Fort-Worth Star-Telegram late Wednesday. A purse containing Holladay's credit cards was also discovered in the truck.

Low water levels at the lake allowed the truck to be visible April 17. Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds told the Star-Telegram that the vehicle's ID number matched the VIN of the 1970s-model Chevrolet truck that was registered to Holladay.

Holladay vanished Sept. 29, 1979, and neighbors said the 45-year-old bank teller left home that day after an argument with her second husband. Herman Hollady, who died in 1987, was an original suspect, but never collected enough evidence to arrest him.

The Texas discovery comes more than a week after a Studebaker came to the surface in a South Dakota, and police found human remains of two teenage girls who disappeared in 1971.
