Remains of slain Arizona woman found in Texas

PRESCOTT, AZ - Authorities say the body of a woman last seen in Camp Verde five years ago has been found in Texas.

The Daily Courier reported Tuesday that Yavapai County Sheriff's detectives last week located the remains of 65-year-old Kristal Forest in the desert outside of El Paso, Texas.

Sheriff's officials say 60-year-old Robert Reed was indicted last year for killing Forest and pleaded guilty to second-degree murder last month.

Authorities say he then told investigators where to find her body.

At the time of her March 2009 disappearance, Forest was in the process of moving from Cottonwood to Austin, Texas.

Reed allegedly was helping Forest with her move and her empty trailer was found at a Las Cruces, New Mexico storage yard in April 2009.
