Sixth body found in cars pulled from Foss Lake, one victim identified

The Sheriff says the remains of a sixth body has been found found in the two cars found in Foss Lake Tuesday.

Officials have confirmed the identity of at least one of the victims in the 1969 Camaro found in Foss Lake, according to the Elk City Daily News. The identities are not being released until all family members are notified. Details about the remains in the 1950′s Chevy are not being released.

Custer County authorities were practicing with a new sonar device when they found the vehicles in Foss Lake Tuesday afternoon near the marina, according to the Elk City Daily News.

Investigators said one of the vehicles is connected to a cold case more than 40-years-old where three teenagers went missing Nov. 20, 1970.

The 1969 Chevrolet Camaro crews pulled from Foss Lake may have belonged to 16-year-old Jimmy Allen Williams, who was last seen driving in Sayre with two friends, 18-year-old Thomas Rios and 18-year-old Leah Johnson.

The three teens never returned home and have not been heard from since.

The second vehicle, a 1957 Chevy, may be linked to an older cold case from the 1950s or 1960s where two people went missing from Canute.
