Bones those of Nev. girl

HARRISONBURG —Investigators identified the bones found recently in Catahoula Parish, solving one mystery but unraveling an even longer string of questions.

Forensic experts confirmed Tuesday that the remains are those of Las Vegas resident Lexis Kaye Roberts, who was 12.

But why and how Roberts ended up 1,558 miles from home in a heavily wooded portion of rural Louisiana is still unknown.

The girl was last seen traveling with her mother, Suellen Roberts, and a man, Thomas Sanders, who was not a relative near Arizona National Forest.

According to helpfindmychild.com and news reports from KTNV in Arizona, Sanders had a criminal record.

According to KTNV story published on Sept. 15, Suellen Roberts’ mother, Mary Woodburn, belives foul play is involved.

“It’s not like my daughter just to turn cold and leave and not call me in so many days,” she said. “I think maybe (Sanders) did something to my daughter and now my granddaughter.”

Roberts was identified through dental records by the LSU Forensic Anthropology and Computer Enhancement Services Lab.

Catahoula Parish Sheriff’s Office Detective Toney Edwards said experts at FACES were searching online for missing people when they ran across a news flash.

“Once they noticed the girl in the video was similar to the remains found, they called the agency out there,”

he said. “They sent in the dental records and matched them to the girl.”

Edwards said Roberts was reported missing Sept. 5 and was last seen in a silver 2001 Kia Motors four-door sedan with the Nevada license plate 153UCR.

“We do not currently know where the mother and this guy are at the time,” he said. “We are in the process of locating the car and them.”

Edwards said the case is still an ongoing investigation, but Suellen Roberts and Sanders are definitely people of interest.

Suellen Roberts is a white female, age 31, approximately 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes.

Sanders is a white male, age 53, approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds, with gray hair and blue eyes.

Edwards said an evidence recovery team from the Federal Bureau of Investigations will be visiting the sight where the remains were found.

“They are going to be doing a scan over the area where the body was recovered to find more evidence,” he said. “This could help link her to somebody who may know more.”

Roberts remains were found by a hunter in the woods north of Harrisonburg Oct. 8.

Forensic experts estimate the bones had been in the woods anywhere from a few weeks to several months.

Anyone with any information regarding the case is asked to call the Catahoula Parish Sheriff’s Office at 318-744-5411.

NV girl seen in AZ before body found in Louisiana

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a 12-year-old Las Vegas girl whose skeletal remains were found in a wooded area in Louisiana was seen Labor Day weekend at a tourist attraction not far from the Grand Canyon.

Sheriff's officials in Arizona's Coconino County told the Las Vegas Review-Journal for a Thursday report that 12-year-old Lexis Kaye Roberts was seen Sept. 4 with her mother, 31-year-old Suellen Roberts, and a man, 53-year-old Thomas Sanders, at the Bearizona Drive-Thru Wildlife Park off Interstate 40 in Williams, Ariz.

Las Vegas police say a Sept. 6 missing persons report was closed Sept. 16, after investigators learned the girl and her mother had been seen in Arizona.

The sheriff's office in Louisiana's Catahoula Parish reported Wednesday that the FBI, U.S. marshals, Louisiana state police and other agencies were investigating after Roberts' remains were found by hunters Oct. 8 north of Harrisonburg, La.

Catahoula Parish sheriff's Detective Toney Edwards told The Town Talk of Alexandria, La., that the remains were identified by dental records, and that Suellen Roberts and Sanders were sought for questioning as persons of interest in the case.

FBI Names Suspect In Girl's Murder

The FBI has issued a federal kidnapping warrant for Thomas Steven Sanders in connection with a 12-year-old Nevada girl whose body was found in early October in Catahoula Parish.

Authorities said Thursday that Lexis Kaye Roberts of Las Vegas was last seen with her mother and Sanders. The girl's skeletal remains were found by hunters Oct. 8 in a wooded area north of Harrisonburg.

Officials said security cameras showed Sanders buying ammunition at a Wal-Mart in Las Vegas on Sept. 3.

The FBI said a forensic anthropologist reported that Lexis suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

Agents said the ammunition Sanders purchased was consistent with the caliber weapon used during the homicide.

In 1994, Sanders was legally declared dead in the state of Mississippi by family members.

"We now know that he is still alive and has ties to several states across the country," the FBI said. "We have been able to obtain photographs of Sanders that illustrate how his appearance has varied over the last several years."

Man declared dead arrested in kidnapping

A man declared legally dead 16 years ago was arrested in Mississippi for the kidnapping of a Las Vegas girl whose body was found in Louisiana, and authorities were pressing the suspect Monday for information on the girl's missing mother.

FBI spokeswoman Sheila Thorne said Thomas Steven Sanders was taken into custody Sunday at a truck stop in Gulfport, Miss., after a massive manhunt in a bizarre case that stretched across the country.

Sanders, 53, was wanted in the kidnapping of 12-year-old Lexis Roberts, whose skeleton was found by hunters last month in Catahoula Parish, La. Her 31-year-old mother, Suellen Roberts, is missing. Authorities fear the mother is dead too.

Catahoula Parish Sheriff James Kelly told The Associated Press on Monday that Sanders is cooperating with authorities. Sanders was alone when he was arrested at the Flying J Truck Stop. He was not armed and did not put up a fight, Kelly said.

"Right now we have a lot more questions than we do answers as far as his activity since we've been looking for him," Kelly said.

Louisiana authorities want to extradite Sanders to face charges there, though it's not clear how long that could take, Kelly said.

Court documents obtained by The Associated Press show Sanders abandoned his family in 1987 and was declared dead by a Mississippi court 1994. He lived unnoticed for years despite being arrested several times.

Body found in Arizona linked to girl found dead in Louisiana

Arizona authorities said Monday they discovered the body of a woman believed to be the missing mother of a girl found dead in Louisiana.

The possible remains of Suellen Roberts, 31, were found in a remote area off Interstate 40 in northwestern Arizona,
according to the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office.

Thomas Steven Sanders was arrested in Mississippi on Sunday in the kidnapping of Roberts’ daughter, 12-year-old Lexis Roberts. The girl’s skeleton was found by hunters last month in Louisiana.

Authorities said they were trying to determine if Thomas is linked to Suellen Roberts’ disappearance.

Federal investigators provided the Yavapai sheriff’s office with information on the likely whereabouts of the woman’s body, authorities said.

Sanders had met Roberts and her daughter a few months ago. The trio had been spotted at a drive-thru wildlife park in Williams, Ariz., and at the Grand Canyon over Labor Day weekend, authorities said.

Roberts and her daughter were reported missing from the Las Vegas area in September.

'Legally Dead' Man Faces Murder Charge

A Mississippi man who drifted through several states after he was declared dead in 1994 will be charged with murder in the slaying of a 12-year-old Las Vegas girl whose body was found by hunters in remote Louisiana woods, authorities said Wednesday.

Thomas Steven Sanders is scheduled to face a federal magistrate Friday at a detention hearing in Alexandria, La., on a kidnapping charge. Sheriff James Kelly in Louisiana's central Catahoula Parish, where the girl's body was discovered last month, said his department will charge Sanders with first-degree murder once federal prosecutors finish processing the suspect on the kidnapping charge.

'Legally Dead' Man Pleads Not Guilty to Kidnapping

A Mississippi man who was declared legally dead in 1994 pleaded not guilty Friday to a federal kidnapping charge in the abduction of a 12-year-old girl who was found dead in remote Louisiana woods.

Thomas Steven Sanders, suspected of shooting Lexis Roberts of Las Vegas before dumping her body, said little Friday while in federal court in Louisiana. Shackled and wearing an orange prison jumpsuit, he spent much of the time reading documents with his lawyer.

Sanders, also is a suspect in the disappearance of the girl's mother, Suellen Roberts. Authorities believe a body found Monday in Arizona may be hers. Authorities are trying to positively identify the body with dental records.

Arizona authorities confirm body is that of missing mother

Arizona authorities have confirmed that a woman's body discovered in a remote area in Yavapai County last month is that of Suellen Roberts, the missing mother of a Las Vegas girl found dead in Louisiana.

Yavapai County Sheriff's Office spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said medical examinations confirmed the remains found in mid-November off Interstate 40 in northwestern Arizona are those of the 31-year-old mother who went missing after Labor Day weekend.

The medical examiner classified Suellen Roberts' cause of death as "undetermined homicidal violence," but noted her remains had evidence of a gunshot wound to the head.

Thomas Steven Sanders, 53, was arrested in Gulfport, Miss., in November in the kidnapping of Roberts' daughter, 12-year-old Lexis Roberts. The girl's skeleton was found by hunters in October in Louisiana.

Sanders pleaded not guilty to kidnapping Lexis Roberts last month. He has not been charged in her death yet, said Robert E. King, supervisory senior resident agent with the FBI in Alexandria, La.

"They're just taking their time to make sure everything is done correctly" because Sanders remains in custody in Louisiana, King said Tuesday morning.

'Legally dead' man faces hearing in slaying case

An arraignment hearing is scheduled Friday for a man who was declared dead nearly 17 years ago in Mississippi, then resurfaced last year as a suspect in the abduction and killing of a Las Vegas woman and her daughter.

Thomas Steven Sanders pleaded not guilty to a federal kidnapping charge in Louisiana in November in the death of 12-year-old Lexis Roberts. He’s charged with shooting Roberts and dumping her body in Louisiana’s Catahoula Parish.

He faces another arraignment because a Louisiana grand jury returned a new indictment that charges him with using a firearm in a violent crime, along with kidnapping.

Sanders also is suspected in the death of the Roberts’ mother, Suellen, whose body was found in Arizona’s Yavapai County last year.
