At a press conference late yesterday afternoon, Rockingham County Sheriff Sam Page says it is too early to say the remains are in fact that of Jennifer Short.
Yesterday, investigators transported some bone fragments to Roanoke for D-N-A analysis and THAT should say with certainty whether it is the missing Henry County girl.

Falwell is challenging a state law that limits the amount of property churches can own to 15 acres in a city or town .. and 250 acres in a county. Those limits were enacted in the late 17-hundreds .. when governments feared that powerful churches might overwhelm the state. The suit was filed last November. Today it takes a step forward when a federal judge hears arguments from both sides..

The federal government has filed a sexual harassment complaint against Advance Auto.
The lawsuit says the company created a hostile work environment by failing to protect a former employee.
Lisa Delp, a cashier at the Wytheville store, says a customer harassed her on several occasions, starting about two years ago.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission investigated, and says Advance Auto failed to follow its policies and take care of the problem.
Advance Auto says once it learned of the improper behavior, it took steps to address it, and banned the customer from its stores.
The company says it does not tolerate any type of harassment and works to provide a safe and respectful workplace.
