New Lead in 1992 Kidnapping Gives Hope to Investigators

Christine Starrine Byrd disappeared from her Tyler neighborhood back in 1992. A new lead in the case has investigators hopeful they'll find her body.

Patrick Horn, already convicted in the slaying of 11-year old Chad Choice, has been a suspect since Christine Byrd disappeared. A new tip has Horn's partner in crime, Christopher Wells allegedly involved in the moving of  Byrd's remains.

Wells and Horn are both serving time for bank robbery and murder.

Authorities believe Christine Byrd may have been killed for having information on the Chad Choice murder. Christopher Wells' involvement in Byrd's disappearance has not been confirmed... but it's a lead authorities are taking seriously.
