Authorities say the human remains found in vehicle submerged in the Trinity River near Romayor on Feb. 17 belong to Jennifer Ann Scott-Perkins, 48, of Houston, who disappeared on Jan. 2.
Positive identification was made through personal papers found on Scott-Perkins as well as other confirmation efforts, according to a statement from the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office.
Earlier information provided by the sheriff’s office when Scott-Perkins went missing suggests she was emotionally upset when she last communicated with friends and family.
When authorities found her vehicle in the Trinity River, the windows were rolled down and the hood was forced up, suggesting she entered the river intentionally and at a high rate of speed.
