BREAKING NEWS: Missing McStay Family Finally Found

The mysterious disappearance of the McStay family in 2010 appears to have finally been solved -- California police announced today that they believe they've just uncovered the missing foursome's skeletal remains.

The doomed couple and their two young children had all been buried in shallow graves. 

Autopsy results are still pending, but officials have already stated that the victims' deaths were apparently due to homicide.

That sad find was made in the sands of the Southern California desert, not too far from where the McStay's had originally vanished.

Over the past three years investigators pursued hundreds of tips in an effort to solve the McStay family's inexplicable disappearance, eventually drawing the conclusion that they'd abruptly left their San Diego home for Mexico.

In fact, adding to the riddle of their sudden departure, and helping to bolster the official theory of a voluntary absence, the McStay family vehicle had been found parked at the Mexican border. 

Authorities were further convinced that four people seen on poor-quality surveillance video entering at the Tijuana checkpoint on foot together in 2010 were the McStays.

But it now looks like they were dead wrong.

Update 11/18: Did serial killer Israel Keyes slay the McStays?


  1. UPDATE at 8:00 AM on 11/16/2013: Upon discovery of the McStay family's remains, despondent relatives of the deceased expressed contempt for law enforcement enforcement officials who they accuse of botching the investigation for years.

    The shallow grave site of the missing family revealed evidence of murder, authorities stated, and murder is what the victims' loved ones all along believed had been their fates, despite investigators repeatedly asserting that the McStays had 'voluntarily' vanished.

    Complete autopsy results are still pending.
