Marshall Police Department return bone.....

but now there are still more questions?

Update June 9, 2006- Today, the Marshall Police Department returned a bone to the family that was recovered while digging on a suspicious area of property in Sheridan Township, Michigan. The item was turned over to a Marshall police-officer on May 6th and secured as evidence for examination. On May 8th the police reported to the family the bone was not that of a human after it was examined by a university anthropologist. After numerous requests the police returned the bone but Marshall Police failed to provide a copy of the official results to the family. Furthermore, the chain of custody noted on their own evidence envelope presents more questions than answers? The family will now attempt to conduct an independent examination of this bone and others that have been recovered. All of these excavation efforts have been done by family, friends, and supporters at their own expense and without any assistance from law enforcement. The family continues to advocate their position that the Federal Bureau of Investigation be permitted to take over primary jurisdiction of this case so that Mary can be brought home.

Our families in Grand Rapids can certainly relate to the obstruction of justice that the family of Mary Marshall Lands has been experiencing with the Marshall Police Department from day one. We, too, would like to know why all law enforcement agencies in this state seem to be so intent of shafting all of our families out of the truth and out of justice. Why would anyone, let alone law enforcement agencies, do that to any family? The important thing to remember is that ALL of our families need to stick together, support and help each other get through these horrific ordeals. Every family deserves to know the truth and to get justice for their loved ones.

It is certainly a shame that the Marshall Police Dept. has not provided closure for this family. Maybe the FBI could be of more help at such a juncture.

The family, friends and supports of Mary Denise Lands would like the police to at least name a "person of interest"?
There is one or more out there!

I live in Battle Creek MI My eldest son worked with Mary's son in Marshall. I know that he shared with me the story's her son shared with him. It sure seems that the Marshall Police are either covering somthing up. Or they just do not care. IT IS TIME FOT THE FBI TO STEP IN.I do not understand what the hold up is. And as for the anonymous person that left the message of "who is the person of intrest"? Why do you want to know and why are you anonymous. Are you guilty of something??????

I do not know what I can do to help Anita & Cliff, but would be willing do my part. Just let me know.
