Erica ParsonsROWAN COUNTY, NC – Five years after she disappeared, and three years after she was reported missing, the skeletal remains of 13-year-old Erica Parsons have been found.

For those of you who may not remember this case, here’s a quick refresher:

Erica was adopted by Casey and Sandy Parsons when she was two weeks old. In 2013, Erica’s step-brother reported her missing, but investigators would learn no one had seen the girl since 2011.

Casey and Sandy said they’d sent her to live with a relative in Asheville, but it turned out the relative didn’t exist. Over the next several months, police searched several properties but could not find Erica.

In 2014, Casey and Sandy were convicted on 76 federal charges for taking benefits for adoption assistance during the time Erica was missing. Casey was sentenced to 10 years, and Sandy was sentenced to eight years.

In July, Erica’s aunt and adoptive sister said they believed Erica was dead and that Casey and Sandy Parsons knew where Erica’s body was located. They also said when they visited Sandy in prison, he said he would tell investigators the location of Erica’s remains if they cut him a deal.

Earlier this week, Sandy led investigators to a shallow grave in Pageland, South Carolina that contained Erica’s skeletal remains. The property is believed to belong to one of Sandy’s family members.

More information is expected to be released when thee Rowan County Sheriff’s Office hold a press conference next week.
